PINE RIDGE, SD –
Oglala tribal officials who are still months away from implementing alcohol sales on the reservation that were approved in a tribal vote last summer.
But they are also facing another controversial issue: Should marijuana be legal on the reservation as well?
Tribal Councilman Larry Eagle Bull of Pine Ridge offered the resolution to a tribal business development committee, which approved it. That could set up a reservation vote sometime later this spring or summer
The tribal council should follow the will of the people on marijuana legalization, whatever that turns out to be, Eagle Bull said.
