Flandreau Tribe Votes To Legalize Marijuana

SOUTH DAKOTA:  A South Dakota tribe has voted to grow and sell marijuana as soon as Fall 2015.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe executive committee voted 5-1 Thursday to legalize the growing and use of marijuana on tribal land. Trustee Roxee Johnson was the sole opposition to the ordinance.

The marijuana control ordinance will establish a facility where marijuana will be grown. Another location will offer marijuana for recreational use.

The ordinance approves marijuana consumption only inside of a single facility that has yet to be determined. Officials describe the proposed facility to function similarly to a bar. Tribe officials said that marijuana will not be allowed to leave that location.
