Two tribes take action to further marijuana markets
November 12, 2020
Recent action on the tribal front regarding marijuana saw the first tribal-owned MJ business open in Michigan and, in Oklahoma, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation passed a law protecting licensed medical cannabis operators and patients.
Northern Light Cannabis Co. and dispensary, located in the Bay Mills Indian Community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, is the first of its kind in the state.
“Now we’ve seen here with the legalization of cannabis in Michigan that a lot of the people who are benefiting from this industry are wealthy investors,” Bryan Newland, tribal chair for Bay Mills Indian Community, told Marquette TV station WJMN.
