Native American Tribe is Opening the Nation’s First “Marijuana Resort”

South Dakota – The Santee Sioux tribe of South Dakota has recently announced that they will be opening the country’s first “Marijuana Resort,” which representatives of the tribe say will be an “adult playground.” Earlier this year, the Department Of Justice issued a statement saying that they would no longer prosecute Native American Tribes for the possession and sale of marijuana. However, as we reported last week, some tribes are still getting raided for attempting to venture into the marijuana industry.

“We want it to be an adult playground. There’s nowhere else in America that has something like this,” Santee Sioux tribe tribal President Anthony Reider told reporters.

Reider said that the tribe must “look at these opportunities because in order to preserve the past we do have to advance in the present.”

Sadly, tribes that want to set up operations like this will be forced to adhere to strict guidelines or risk their entire business, or even face fines or imprisonment. Under the guidelines set by the government, the marijuana will not be allowed to leave the reservation, and it can only be sold in one gram packages, one at a time. If someone wants another gram, they will have to return the barcode from their first gram in order to get a new one.

The tribe is facing considerable risks with this venture, considering that other tribes with similar plans were recently raided because federal agents said that they are not allowed to actually make an income with marijuana. Police in South Dakota have also been fairly harsh on previous attempted grow operations in the state.
