Mille Lacs Band building large cannabis growing facility on tribal land

A company owned by the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe is building a 50,000-square-foot cannabis cultivation facility behind Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia, Minn.

Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures (MLCV) announced last week construction has already begun and should be completed by fall.

"Profits generated from this endeavor will be reinvested into the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe to support essential government programs and services for its members," MLCV said in a news release. "Furthermore, it presents a new avenue for job creation within the Mille Lacs tribal economy."
