Federal govt to allow Native Americans to grow marijuana on tribal lands

Published time: December 12, 2014 00:34
The US government will not stop Native American tribes from growing marijuana on tribal lands, nor will it enforce federal pot laws on the groups, according to a recently released Department of Justice memo.

“With a number of states legalizing marijuana for use and production, some tribes have requested guidance on the enforcement of the Controlled Substance Act (CSA) on tribal lands by the United States Attorneys' offices,” the memo begins.

The directive outlines eight federal law enforcement priorities wherein the DOJ “will focus its limited investigative and prosecutorial resources in all states.”

Federal attorneys should target keeping pot away from minors; thwarting criminal enterprises like gangs and drug cartels from profiting off marijuana sales; preventing the transportation of cannabis out of states where it has been legalized; barring legal marijuana activity from acting as a cover for illegal actions, as well as the use of firearms during those legitimate activities; targeting drugged driving and other adverse public health consequences; preventing marijuana from being cultivated on public lands and federal property, even in states where the crop is legal.

Whoopie to actually say Allowing the Natives to grow marijuana on native lands is silly. It's like telling Native Hawaiians, BTW you're Llowed to grow pineapples on your native land! Yep America.. One Huge Slave Reservation.
