Federal Agents Seize Hemp Grown On Tribal Land in Wisconsin


Federal agents destroyed a Wisconsin-based tribe’s industrial hemp crop that was being grown as a research project, and the tribe’s chairman says he’s perplexed as to why federal agents unilaterally ended a project the tribe believe was legal under the 2014 Farm Bill.

The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin says federal agents seized the tribe’s crop of low THC non-psychotropic industrial hemp on tribal land last week. The tribe was growing the crop to research various strains to see which ones would work best for possible future economic development opportunities, said Chairman Gary Besaw.
