Native Americans Now Have Full Legalization Of Marijuana On Reservation Lands

Anonymous

The United States Justice Department just announced that it will instruct all U.S. attorneys to no longer prevent any Native American tribes from growing, or selling marijuana on reservation land.

This includes reservations within states that prohibit marijuana use, as the reservations are sovereign entities, apart from the states that surround them.  

That means, in the words of High Times, “the law of the land will be left up to each individual tribe.”

“Finally, Native Americans are really beginning to experience true sovereignty,” Dan Skye, the editor-in-chief of High Times said, weighing in on this decision by the U.S. government: “Cannabis – whether it’s industrial hemp, medical or recreational marijuana – can provide employment and economic stimulus on Indian reservations which is so desperately needed.”

We still do not have any indication how many First Nations will take advantage of this new policy.

Typical federal rules, barring marijuana from being sold to minors, being made available to drug cartels, being grown on public lands, or spread across state lines, will still apply.

  1. So , no blood draws?
    No type of drug testing for them what so ever for any type of vehicle infractions or accidents

    I’m fine with this , but the double standard for the rest of us is hypocritical and needs to stop

    If the gov sees it as ok for them , than its ok for the rest of us
    Another proof of no rule of law and special treatment for certain people

    And I am part 1st nation American
    So , if this is going to be allowed , than what’s good for the goose is good for the gander

  2. the down side i see is now cops will hangout
    at rez gates to harass everyone that leaves
    the rez to check for contraband or if thier
    stoned.

  3. “Cannabis – whether it’s industrial hemp, medical or recreational marijuana – can provide employment and economic stimulus on Indian reservations which is so desperately needed.”

    Dan Skye must already be smoking it. It says right up front that none of this can leave the rez. This does not constitute any industry or stimulus. The People might as well just be growing it in their flower beds and using it for themselves. This is just more of “Great White Father’s” double speak, panther pucky!

  4. WASHINGTON HAS ALWAYS TREATED 1ST NATION AS SOME KIND OF “WARD-OF-THE-STATE-BASTERD CHILD- INCOMPETANT-TO-BE-DISREGARDED-IRRELAVANT-INVISABLE” ONLY TO BE KICKED AROUND AND MANIPULATED, LIKE THE REST OF US, ONLY MUCH WORSE, ALWAYS HAS AND ALWAYS WILL, IF THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT.
