Young voters drive Warm Springs move to marijuana


A surge of young voters helped a cannabis referendum pass overwhelmingly Thursday on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

Tribal leaders certified the results Friday.

“The Tribal Council sought the opinion of Tribal Membership regarding the proposed project and Thursday’s results gives us direction on how to proceed,” Austin Greene Jr., council chairman, said Friday in a news release. “Overall, this effort empowered the younger generation of Warm Springs Tribal citizens who came out in record numbers.”
