Seneca Nation votes to explore business of medical marijuana
SALAMANCA – Seneca Nation voters gave their leaders the green light Tuesday to see what it would take to get into the medical marijuana business. In a referendum that coincided with the Nation’s judicial elections, the measure passed, 448-364.
The approval lets the Seneca Nation Council draw up the laws and regulations to allow for the manufacture, use and distribution of medical cannabis. The measure requires further approval from the Nation’s membership, if the Council winds up having to enter into agreements on medical marijuana with other governments.
