Vote on for Warm Springs marijuana plan
Despite the weather canceling the workday at Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs offices today the vote on a cannabis referendum is underway.
Polls are open until 8 p.m. tonight and the tribes are offering rides to voters, according to the KWSO Facebook page. KWSO is the tribal radio station.
Tribal members are considering whether to approve a plan to build an up to 36,000-square-foot marijuana greenhouse on the Warm Springs Reservation. If approved, the operation could bring in more than $173 million in net income in its first seven years, according to Warm Springs Ventures, the tribes’ business arm.
