Feds respond to tribe's suit on hemp operation
GREEN BAY — The federal government has asked for a lawsuit filed against it by the Menominee Indian Tribe to be dismissed.
In October, federal authorities raided the tribe's industrial hemp growing operation, confiscating 30,000 plants.
A few weeks later, the tribe filed suit in federal court against the Dept. of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency, claiming it has permission under the 2014 Farm Bill to grow the plants.
