Indian Tribe Has Plans on Opening First Marijuana Resort * 2
    #22310233 - 09/29/15 08:56 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

The Santee Sioux tribe of South Dakota has big plans for the marijuana business.

On top of running a successful casino, 120-room hotel and a buffalo ranch, the 400-person tribe has plans to open the nation's first marijuana resort on its reservation, The Associated Press reports.

"We want it to be an adult playground," tribal president Anthony Reider told the AP. "There's nowhere else in America that has something like this."

The "playground" will consist of a smoking lounge fit with a nightclub, arcade games, a bar, food and eventually slot machines and an outdoor music venue.

Marijuana consumption of varying degrees is recreationally legal in Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon and D.C., however, public consumption is still illegal in those areas, forcing marijuana culture to stay behind closed doors. Despite public pot consumption being illegal, some cannabis clubs do operate in Colorado under a hazy legal gray area.

Although marijuana camps have been proposed in the past, weed-friendly hotels operate in Denver and plenty of bud and breakfasts exist across the legal states, a full-blown weed "adult playground" has never been launched, legally at least.

Buzz kill
This won't exactly be a free-for-all. Obviously, the weed won't be able to leave the reservation and there will be some pretty strict rules for guests who want to enjoy their bud. The pot will be sold in bar-coded 1-gram packages for about $12.50 to $15, which is relatively close to the price of weed purchased illegally, according to PriceofWeed.com. That website also lists the average price of an ounce of high-quality pot as $358.65 or $12.78 a gram. Like most products, buying in bulk is cheaper.

Guests will only be allowed to buy one bag at a time, then, in order to buy another bag, they'll have to return the bar-coded empty package. Seriously, Mom?

This is a new venture for the Santee Sioux, as the legalization of marijuana came in June after the Justice Department issued a new policy allowing Native American tribes to grow and sell marijuana under the same conditions as some states. However, not all tribes are ready to get into the pot business.

Regardless, the new venture comes as a welcome opportunity for some tribes, which are struggling with economic issues.

“The vast majority of tribes have little to no economic opportunity,” Blake Trueblood, business development director at the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development told the AP. For those tribes, “this is something that you might look at and say, ‘We’ve got to do something.'”

The tribe is currently building its first growing facility, which has approximately 30 strains. To help the newbies with the effort, the tribe hired Denver-based consulting firm Monarch America to get them started.

"This is not a fly-by-night operation," said Jonathan Hunt, Monarch's vice president and chief grower. "(Tribal leaders) want to show the state how clean, how efficient, how proficient, safe and secure this is as an operation. We are not looking to do anything shady."

Shade aside, the operation hopes to generate up to $2 million in profit a month and plans on kicking things off on Dec. 31 for a New Year's Eve party.

But as Vox points out, the adult playground is entirely dependent on the current administration's allowance for tribes to sell weed. Plenty of people running for president in 2016 would love to squash that.

So any Indian reservation in any state could start growing and selling weed? How can you stop people from taking it off the reservation? Besides the state police waiting for you as soon as you leave, it doesn't sound enforceable. Good luck to them though hopefully they set up pot stores on reservations in all 50 states and make a killing.

It's pretty bomb they're doing this, it's gonna pull in tons of revenue for the tribe! :thumbup:

@my3rdeye
Yeah, any tribe can grow weed on reservations. Problem is, some tribes don't have reservations, but still have governments, so only certain tribes can have legal weed.

Maybe obvious, but ANY native american reservation now has this right, amazing news!



"Native American reservations have just been given the legal federal authority to grow and sell marijuana.

The Justice Department said it isn’t going to go after reservations if its residents decide to cultivate pot for sale, even if the states the reservations are located in still deem the drug illegal, The Washington Post reported.

The federal government’s announcement didn’t come from any particular plea from reservationists to sell the weed. Rather, Oregon U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall said the guidelines were issued on the heels of an inquiry from tribal governments to see if the Department of Justice would actually back bans of pot sales on reservations in states where marijuana is legal — Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Alaska, The Post reported.

And the answer: The feds say reservations can make their own rules regarding pot.

The United States is home to 326 federally recognized reservations, most of which are located in states that ban the use of marijuana for recreational use."

I felt uncomfortable with the term, reservation, to describe a sovereign country. It seems to me that territorial rights are revocable, as some overseer is simply making an allowance for you.

Tight rules have admittedly been enforced for a plant which ought to have the same moral status as a dandelion, which implies that you needed a treaty for this. What happens if aboriginals are too flexible. 

I also wonder how non-aboriginals might gain diplomatic recognition, so they can can go about their business, without being molested.
