2 tribes, state of Kansas enter into cigarette-sale compacts


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A sign advertising "discount smokes" outside of The Nation Station convenience store on a reservation in northeast Kansas draws Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation members and visitors looking for cheap cigarettes. Inside is a wall lined with Native American-manufactured cigarettes such as Seneca, the store's best-selling brand at $3.77 per pack.

The tribe prides itself on its autonomy in selling tobacco products without the state of Kansas' intervention.
