South Puget Sound Tribe Opens Nation's First Reservation Marijuana Store
A South Puget Sound tribe is planning a grand opening at 4:20 p.m. on Thursday for what it believes is the nation's first marijuana store on a reservation.
The recreational marijuana shop is in a small, simple building across the street from the Squaxin Island Tribe's casino near Shelton, Washington. The retail store is named "Elevation."
Squaxin councilman Jim Peters said he and fellow tribal members had qualms about getting into the retail marijuana business.
