The Sioux Falls Argus reported that the South Dakota project to create a tourist destination for cannabis in a state that doesn’t permit legal or medicinal cannabis is in jeopardy. The resort had been expected to open on December 31st:
The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe is temporarily suspending its marijuana cultivation and distributing facilities and is destroying its existing crop as leaders seek clarification on regulations from the federal government, according to the tribe’s lawyer.
Seth Pearman said the suspension is pivotal to the continued success of the marijuana venture and that tribal leadership is confident that after getting clarification from the U.S. Department of Justice, “it will be better suited to succeed.”
