Let It Be Pot: Two Washington State Tribes on Board
For the Suquamish Tribe and the Squaxin Island Tribe, licensing the retail sale of marijuana and legalizing its use on their lands now seems unavoidable.
Thousands of motorists a day take State Highway 305 through Suquamish’s Port Madison Indian Reservation on their way to and from the neighboring cities of Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island. The reservation’s residents include non-Native Americans allowed under voter-approved state law to use marijuana.
The Squaxin Island Tribe’s reservation is near U.S. 101, 16 miles northwest of the state capital of Olympia.
