BILLINGS — The Fort Peck Tribal Council says tribal members are not allowed to possess marijuana on the reservation, even if they have a state-issued medical marijuana card.
Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Lt. Patrick O’Connor was trying to clear up enforcement questions for a medical marijuana dispensary owner in Wolf Point.
In the county, a deputy can enforce state law in the county or tribal law on the reservation. The council’s decision means if officers encounter a tribal member and a non-tribal member, both in possession of marijuana and both with medical marijuana cards, he would have to cite the tribal member for possession.[share-btn]
