Marijuana Will Not Be Legal on Tribal Land

Sean Gallup Getty Images News

Leaders of The Yakama Nation say they will not recognize the state’s legalized recreational marijuana law.

Marijuana remains illegal on the 1.2 million-acre reservation. The tribe’s attorney George Colby says the citizens of Washington lack the authority to legalize recreational pot use on tribal lands.

Colby says the tribe wants to publicize that people seeking to grow, sell and distribute on Yakama land will not be welcomed.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board, the group charged with designing the State’s new regulations, took the tribe’s recommendation and added a rule that requires notifying the tribal government if anyone applies for a permit on tribal land.
