Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe legalizes cannabis for adult use

The Flandreau Santee Sioux tribe, a tribe with around 400 members located in South Dakota, legalized marijuana in June of 2015. This was possible after the United States Justice Department outlined a new policy that gave tribes permission to grow and sell cannabis under the same conditions as some states. The small South Dakota tribe also plans to open a resort where people can legally buy and consume cannabis grown on the reservation.
