A 'deal with the devil'? Native American tribes push for marijuana legalization

 


With 23 US states having legalized marijuana in some form – Oregon became the latest to permit the sale of marijuana for recreational on Thursday – some Native American nations are now also considering the possibility of legalizing the plant, in some cases because it could represent a revenue stream.

Within the past few weeks, two Wisconsin nations, the Menominee and the Ho-Chunk, have registered popular support for such a move, one through a referendum and the other when tribal members voted to adopt a resolution supporting legalization.
