    Feds: Native American Tribes Can Make Their Own Marijuana Laws

    GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) The U.S. Justice Department said Thursday Indian tribes can grow and sell marijuana on their lands as long as they follow the same federal conditions laid out for states that have legalized the drug.
    Oregon U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall said Thursday the announcement addresses questions raised by tribes about how legalization of pot in states like Oregon, Washington and Colorado would apply to Indian lands.

    Only three tribes have expressed interest in growing and selling marijuana, said Marshall, who co-chaired a group that developed the policy. One is in California, one in Washington state and one in the Midwest. She did not name them.

    Another step forward. What we are seeing is the slow repeal of Marijuana laws across the nation. I give it under 25 years until its legalized nationally. But hey, it looks like its gonna be a lot easier to purchase Marijuana across the nation.

    I heard this on TV when I was cooking earlier. I immediately said, "That's not fair." Why do they get it easy like that where I can't?

    This is a little off topic, but for all the bitching by blacks of how hard they've had it, there is no demographic in this country that has it worse today than Native Americans. Glad to see a little good news on their part.

    As long as they pay for things it doesn't bother me. Then again they typically don't...

    Time to go down to the squatting eagle casino and toke up.

    wonder if they come up across some bones while building the new MJ shops if they'll stop all construction...

    Unless you are referring to the Palm Springs-based Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.

    The OP mentions there's one tribe in California but doesn't name the tribe. "U.S. Today" story about marijuana and Indians mentions the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The richest Indian tribe in America.
    Justice Dept.: Tribes can legalize pot on reservations

    The reason why the tribe is the richest tribe in America, one only has to look at a map of Palm Springs, Ca. You see a checkerboard, the tribe owns 50% of Palm Springs. 1/2 of the businesses and home owners are leasing the land they are on from the Agua Caliente reservation.

    Seeing my parents were already for legalization in the 1960s I would say it has taken some time.

    Because in many respects, they aren't subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

    Which really isn't fair itself.

    In fact, it sucks. Their exemptions from federal taxes allow them to make huge amounts of money for the respective tribes. I don't know how tribes in other parts of the country are doing, but in this region, they seem to be doing quite well these days.
