NCNOW.com is reporting that the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa of Bayfield, Wis. is holding a tribal advisory referendum to gauge tribal opinions on cannabis.

In 2014 federal authorities ruled that sovereign Native American tribes have the power to grow/sell marijuana within reservation boundaries.

The advisory referendum will consist of three yes/no questions:

The first: Red Cliff should allow the medical use of cannabis (marijuana) for approved medical conditions.

The second: Red Cliff should allow the recreational use of cannabis (marijuana) for adults.

The third: Red Cliff should allow the agricultural production of hemp (marijuana) for industrial use.

The advisory referendum is not a binding referendum; it is merely gauging tribal member’s opinions on this issue.

The band will analyze Friday’s results and determine what, if any, further course of action should be taken regarding the questions.
