Shinnecock Nation Approves Medical Marijuana Dispensary On Tribal Land


SOTUHAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The Shinnecock Indian Nation has voted in overwhelming support of a proposed medical marijuana facility on its tribal land on Long Island’s East End.

The proposed plan would include the development of medical marijuana cultivation and dispensary facilities, owned by the Shinnecock Nation, under designation of New York State, according to a statement released by Shinnecock officials on Wednesday.

The Shinnecock-owned operations would work in compliance with New York’s new medical marijuana program, with revenue from the project going to fund day-to-day tribal operations.
