Cherokee council sparks up medicinal marijuana initiative


CHEROKEE — After months of debate, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Council yesterday approved a plan to pursue legalizing medicinal marijuana, at least for tribal members on the tribe’s lands.

The plan is a relatively small step, compared to what a local activist group, Common Sense Cannabis, had hoped for after the U.S. Justice Department last summer freed Native American tribes to plot their own course on regulating the drug.
