Tribe says DEA destroyed hemp crop; officials say it was pot: Menominee tribal chairman speaks out


KESHENA — The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin says federal agents entered tribal lands and improperly destroyed a crop of industrial hemp. Federal officials, however, say the crop was an illegal marijuana grow operation.

Acting U.S. Attorney Gregory Haanstad says agents executed a search warrant on Friday, October 23rd, and seized about 30,000 marijuana plants weighing several pounds.

The Menominee Tribe legalized the growing of low THC industrial hemp on its lands in May.
