South Dakota tribe to open nation’s first marijuana resort

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

FLANDREAU, S.D. — The Santee Sioux tribe has already proven its business acumen, running a successful casino, a 120-room hotel, and a 240-head buffalo ranch on the plains of South Dakota.

But those enterprises have not been immune to competition and the lingering effects of the Great Recession, so the small tribe of 400 is undertaking a new venture — opening the nation’s first marijuana resort on its reservation.

The experiment could offer a new money-making model for tribes nationwide seeking economic opportunities beyond casinos.

Santee Sioux leaders plan to grow their own marijuana and sell it in a smoking lounge that includes a nightclub, arcade games, bar and food service, and eventually, slot machines and an outdoor music venue.

‘‘We want it to be an adult playground,’’ tribal President Anthony Reider said. ‘‘There’s nowhere else in America that has something like this.’’

Marijuana growers sentenced to federal prison

Category: News | Posted on Sat, October, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The three remaining defendants in the case of the so-called Kettle Falls Five were sentenced to federal prison on Friday for growing marijuana in a state where both the medical and recreational use of marijuana are legal under Washington laws.

The defendants are known as the Kettle Falls Five because of their original number. They were convicted earlier this year of growing marijuana on their rural property near Kettle Falls, in violation of federal law.

Rolland Gregg was sentenced Friday to 33 months in prison, followed by three years of probation. His wife Michelle Gregg, 36, was sentenced to one year in prison and three years of probation. Rhonda Firestack-Harvey, 56, who is Rolland Gregg's mother, was also sentenced to one year in prison and three years of probation.

All three remain free pending the outcome of appeals.

"I sincerely apologize for violating federal law," Rolland Gregg told U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Rice prior to sentencing. "I am not the victim here. I am now a felon."

Texas Coalition To Inject Marijuana Debate Into State Legislative Races

texas marijuana legislatureTexans for Responsible Marijuana Policy to Mobilize Activists Statewide in Effort to Inject Marijuana Policy Debate Into 2016 State Legislative Races; New Texas Lyceum Poll Finds Three Out of Four Voters Support Reform

Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy will hold an advocacy training event Saturday in San Antonio that will mark the beginning of a statewide effort to inject the marijuana policy debate into 2016 state legislative races. Regional events are also scheduled for Dallas on October 31, Corpus Christi on November 7, East Texas on December 5, and Houston on December 12.

“Comprehensive marijuana reform saw tremendous progress this legislative session largely because families and regular Texans shared their stories with lawmakers,” said State Sen. José Menéndez (D-San Antonio). “The movement to change our antiquated and dangerous prohibition laws are gaining traction. However, that momentum will be lost unless citizens stay engaged with their lawmakers during the interim and campaign season.

“That’s why these advocacy training events are so important because citizens will be the catalyst for change,” Sen. Menéndez said. “I’m excited the inaugural training session is taking place in San Antonio. Poll after poll shows Texans are ready for comprehensive marijuana reform.”

The guest speaker at the Saturday event in San Antonio is Michael Gilbert, Ph.D., a University of Texas San Antonio professor of criminal justice who previously served as a corrections officer. He will join representatives of Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy for a media availability at 12 p.m. CT, and members of the media are invited to listen to his presentation at 1 p.m. CT.
