The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of South Dakota voted to legalize the growing and use of marijuana on tribal land last week.
According to reports from Keoland.com, the approved 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.”
Cannabis cultivation and use is still against South Dakota law and the tribe’s decision has many state officials concerned.
“The use and possession of marijuana by any non-Indians still remains against the law and would be a misdemeanor. Similarly any time there is an impaired driving, whether it’s alcohol related or marijuana related, would be a DUI under South Dakota law,” Attorney General Marty Jackley said.
