Marijuana industry watches 'game changer' S.D. cases


All eyes in the marijuana industry are on South Dakota following the news last week that the state's top prosecutor would bring felony charges against a pair of consultants who helped a Native American tribe grow marijuana.

While federal raids have taken place across the country as tribes enter into marijuana and hemp growing operations, industry officials think South Dakota is the first state to bring charges against a pair of marijuana consultants who helped the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe cultivate its crop.

The charges also mark the first time an attorney general has targeted how marijuana seeds arrived at a location where they were grown, an issue largely ignored in states that have legalized the drug.
