Cherokee council to vote on marijuana study, free press

 


CHEROKEE — At its Thursday, May 5, meeting, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians’ Tribal Council is slated to take up two increasingly debated issues: the potential of legalizing medicinal marijuana on the tribe’s lands and the autonomy of the tribe’s newspaper.

The agenda items come amidst a wave of changes that has revamped tribal government since elections in September brought in a new principal chief, Patrick Lambert. He replaced 12-year incumbent Michell Hicks, who did not run for reelection but has since become involved in an ongoing set of disputes with Lambert.
