3rd Native American Tribe Set to Launch Adult-Use Cannabis Program in Rural Minnesota

MINNESOTA – The Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe has taken a significant step towards introducing an adult-use cannabis retail program within their tribal lands, according to MJBizDaily.

The tribal business council has recently approved an ordinance that allows for the sale and consumption of cannabis products in the northern region of the state.

The tribe anticipates initiating recreational cannabis sales by the end of this year, with plans to potentially operate up to three retail stores. This move follows the recent launch of adult-use sales by two other Minnesota tribes. the Red Lake Nation and the White Earth Nation.

Tribal nations in Minnesota, similar to those in states like Arizona, Nevada, and New York, have the authority to establish cannabis retail programs independently of state regulators. However, the Leech Lake Band has chosen to operate within the framework of state laws surrounding cannabis regulation.

Additionally, these tribal nations will have a minimum one-year advantage in sales over state-licensed medical and recreational cannabis retailers and other participants in the cannabis industry.
