Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe Burns Crop, Suspends Marijuana Operation


On Saturday, the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribal Council voted to temporarily suspend their marijuana operation. By that evening, their first marijuana crop was in flames.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe (FSST), of Flandreau, South Dakota, recently made national headlines after becoming the first tribal nation to legalize marijuana, this after the Department of Justice issued a memorandum in December 2014, which outlined that tribal nations may grow and sell marijuana as long as they comply with the same regulations as states who opt to legalize.
