DEA Raids Lakota Sioux Industrial Hemp Crop The DEA destroys 1.5 acres of Industrial Hemp with "No detectable THC content" - and devastates a native american family farm. This is the only place I found a story about the Raid. Can you say news blackout?

I don't believe the extreme hypocrisy of the US government to condemn other countries while we probably have the worst record of any country in terms of genocide, etc. How many nuclear submarines or bombers have we built that have gone unused? Wouldn't that be better spent making some sort of reparations to indians and descendants of slaves? The Pine Ridge reservation is probably one of the poorest places in the Western hemisphere, yet nothing is done.

It's ridiculous that a 'Sovereign Nation' like the Lakota Sioux can't grow THC-free industrial hemp without the DEA terrorizing the population. A clear violation of treaty rights if there ever was one.
