Native American Tribes can Legally Grow and Sell Marijuana


Native American tribes can legally grow and sell marijuana even in states where it is considered illegal. This is a result of the Department of Justice’s 2014 move to stop US attorneys from prosecuting Native American tribes that grow and sell pot on reservations.

Native Americans are a sovereign nation, meaning their tribes have the power to govern themselves like states do. That is why they can have marijuana resorts in states like South Dakota where it is illegal to cultivate and sell marijuana.
