Expanding legal weed a calculated risk for tribes
New Mexico is the latest state to allow recreational cannabis sales to the public, setting up a potential new revenue stream for that state’s tribes.

The trouble is, New Mexico tribes are in a precarious limbo between the new state law, and the federal government, which considers cannabis an illegal Schedule 1 controlled substance.

Native America Calling will check in with tribes on the a possibility of new economic development and hear from others that are veterans of the business.
