Legalization of marijuana within the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska lies within the hands of its people
Legalizing marijuana is a touchy subject to tackle. But, the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska is considering making it a part of their community. A referendum giving power to the people of the Omaha Tribe will take place on Tuesday. Members of the community will get a chance to vote on whether marijuana should be allowed for recreational and medical purposes, and whether it should be grown industrially on the reservation.
"We're here to serve the people, and so we want to know what the community wants," said Vernon Miller, Tribal Chairman.
Some members of the community believe legalizing marijuana will be beneficial to the community, especially for medicinal purposes for those that are suffering.
