In Fear Of Feds, S.D. Tribe Burns Pot

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota American Indian tribe that sought to open the nation’s first marijuana resort burned its crop after federal officials signaled a potential raid, the tribal president said Monday.


Flandreau Santee Sioux President Anthony Reider told The Associated Press the tribe had three weeks of discussions with authorities that culminated with a meeting in Washington that included a Justice Department official and U.S. Attorney for South Dakota Randolph Seiler.

Reider said the tribe wasn’t told a raid was imminent — only that one was possible if the government’s concerns weren’t addressed. He said the main holdup is whether the tribe can sell marijuana to non-Indians, along with the origin of the seeds used for its crop.
