Cannabis Trial of the Year Opens in Flandreau, South Dakota


On Friday morning, South Dakota prosecutors are expected to offer their opening arguments in a long-awaited trial against Eric Hagen, president and CEO of the Colorado cannabis consultancy Monarch America.

The case has drawn national attention and will be closely watched by leaders in both the cannabis industry and the Native American legal community. Issues of tribal sovereignty—and a potential precedent regarding the legal culpability of cannabis consultants—will play out in the old Moody County Courthouse, a small stone structure that sits lonely on a city block of grass in the county seat of Flandreau.
