Pomos Seeking To Establish State’s First Tribal Pot Operation

On June 30, 2016, the Secretary of State will certify the initiative as qualified for the November 8, 2016 General Election ballot

CALIFORNIA:  A Ukiah Indian rancheria is in the running to possibly become the site of California’s first tribe-sanctioned marijuana cultivation and distribution operation.

The Pinoleville Pomo Nation is among several tribes engaged in negotiations over a future marijuana-growing operation with Colorado-based United Cannabis Corporation and Kansas-based FoxBarry Farms, LLC, according to the corporations and federal filings.

The two corporations recently entered an agreement under which FoxBarry, which also manages tribal casinos, will distribute United Cannabis branded pot products in California, according to a news release posted on the United Cannabis website and a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

The proposed partnerships follow a U.S. Department of Justice announcement last month that tribes — which are sovereign nations — have the authority to legalize marijuana on their lands.
