South Dakota tribe burned pot crop for fear of federal raid

 


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota American Indian tribe that sought to open the nation's first marijuana resort says it burned its crop after federal officials signaled a potential raid.

Flandreau Santee Sioux President Anthony Reider told The Associated Press the tribe had three weeks of discussions with authorities that culminated with a meeting in Washington that included a Justice Department official and U.S. Attorney for South Dakota Randolph Seiler.

Reider says the tribe wasn't told a raid was imminent - only that one was possible if the government's concerns weren't addressed.
