Idaho Legislators Lobby to Drop Charges Against Hemp Drivers


A trio of Idaho legislators are pushing for state law enforcement officials to drop drug trafficking charges against three truck drivers that were arrested earlier this year for hauling hemp. On May 21, 2019, Reps. Dorothy Moon (R-Stanley), Tammy Nichols (R-Middleton) and Ilana Rubel (D-Boise) delivered over 13,000 petition signatures demanding that the charges be dropped to the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office. In a press release, prosecutors and Idaho State Police responded by saying that they hear the petitioners concerns, but they are “prohibited from negotiating a resolution of cases through the media, or with others who do not legally represent the parties.”
