However, some tribal leaders are reluctant to embrace the new policy. Don Gentry, chairman of the Klamath Tribes in Oregon stated the following:
The U.S. Department of Justice is addressing Indian tribes' request for guidance on the growing and selling of marijuana on Indian land after multiple states have moved to legalize the plant's use in recent years. According to a memorandum, the DOJ issued a policy statement on the enforcement of the Controlled Substance Act saying tribes can grow and sell marijuana on their lands as long as they follow the same federal conditions set for states that have legalized it.
Imagine the brand names that could come from this, and perhaps those Indian statues once found being used for advertising purposes will come back in style?
"We have an alcohol- and drug-free policy at work. It would just not be something we would be looking for into the future."
Now when will they allow the rest of us to do the same? Everywhere? When?!
