Officials with the Drug Enforcement Agency say the plants were high-grade marijuana plants. Menominee Tribal Chairman Gary Besaw says no, that was industrial hemp.
On Friday, bulldozers were filling dump trucks with the plants from a field just west of Suring.
According to the DEA, the pot growing operation was led by growers from Colorado.
The full story from WTAQ.
Wow, why would the tribe bring in people from Colorado? Is there money being exchanged for services? There are plenty of people in the area that would grow pot for free.
Tribe not happy. If the Menominee are mad about the Feds taking their hemp, why not shut down the reservation like in the 1970's? Block all the roads and protest the government! Oh, that's right, there's a casino in Keshena. Can't kick the gamblers out of the county.
With Menominee being the poorest county in Wisconsin, why do the people of the Menominee Nation put up with leadership that can't seem to do anything good for it's people. And why do the voters of the county since the beginning of time always vote for democrats who keep them poor, and government dependent just for their vote?
