Tribe tackling legal marijuana


MarijuanaMISSION, Ore. – The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Board of Trustees is expected to revisit marijuana legalization issues in the new year. Director of Communications Chuck Sams says the trustees will also look at a recent move on marijuana-related businesses made by the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs.

“Our cousins did pass a marijuana referendum, but what’s unique about that one is that they didn’t decriminalize in on the reservation,” he said. “The only thing that they passed by referendum – which was nearly with 86 percent of the vote – was to actually commercialize it.”
