The Ho-Chunk Nation reports on its Facebook page that the tribe’s General Council voted Saturday to change the rules on using marijuana on its tribal lands. 63% voted in favor with 33.9% voting against.

WKOW reports Ho-Chunk Nation officials said the ruling does not make the use and sale of marijuana legal yet on their tribal lands, and that officials and attorneys will be researching the implications of changing the ban.

Ho-Chunk says all branches of its government will begin to determine how to move forward with details and will make announcements in the coming weeks.

The move comes on the heels of recent votes in favor of legalization on tribal lands by other Wisconsin tribes including the Menominee Nation, the Red Cliff Band and the Sokaogon Chippewa Community.
