Menominee Tribe members say yes to selling marijuana on reservation


Almost 58 percent supported allowing tribal members to smoke recreationally, 76.5 percent approved it for medicinal purposes.

The tribe said the referendum results are advisory, meaning tribal leadership isn’t bound by them.

The possibility comes on the heels of the tribe’s unsuccessful effort to open a casino in Kenosha.

Just last month two California tribes were raided by federal and state authorities who said they seized at least 12,000 marijuana plants and more than 100 pounds of processed marijuana.
