Can Non-Tribal Members Buy Weed on Tribal Land?

If medical cannabis is legal in a tribal nation within a state where cannabis is illegal, can a non-member become a patient? 

The answer is: technically YES

The Constitution recognizes these tribal nations as individual sovereignties with the same powers as federal and state governments to regulate their internal affairs. 

And as long as the tribal governments accept the non-member application for a medical marijuana card, one could technically become a medical patient that can make medical purchases on tribal land. 

Check out our blog for more info.

For instance, in North Carolina where cannabis is still very much illegal, the Cherokee nation in the western part of the state has legalized medical cannabis within their jurisdiction.

A government liaison between the state and tribal nation indicated that non-tribal members could purchase medical marijuana as long as they get approved for a medical card through the tribal Cannabis Control Board. 

The Control Board would also accept a medical marijuana card from out of state or tribal nation where medical marijuana is legal. 

But do note, people who leave tribal land with their purchases would be subject to state laws. So, please consider all of the potential legal consequences. 

High Times Cannabis Cup Comes to Massachusetts

Next in news, 

if you’re a cannabis consumer, you may have heard about the High Times Cannabis Cup. If not, let me brief you.

It’s a longstanding global competition where judges and industry leaders determine the best quality cannabis products submitted by growers and producers from around the world. 

It’s a prestigious honor to win a Cannabis Cup Award

And this year, the competition will be held in Massachusetts for the first time ever. 

The Massachusetts People’s Choice Edition will be open to the public and will be the largest pool of judges in the competition’s history. 

If you are interested in becoming a judge, you’re able to register on the cannabis cup website

Judge kits will be available in multiple dispensaries across the state later this month and those who receive one will be reviewing a wide variety of Massachusetts-grown products to help crown the best of the Spirit of America.

To which we say, good luck and may the best products win! 

Community College of Denver Launches Associate’s Degree for Cannabis Business

And lastly, 

An associate’s degree in cannabis business will be available at Community College of Denver this fall!

There is a huge demand for fully trained and qualified personnel especially in Colorado where cannabis is now a major industry. 

According to the school’s website, “This new, innovative program will allow students to think critically about cannabis legislation, growing, distributing/selling, and the social impact of the industry,”

This program will undoubtedly help prepare students to navigate an industry that is still facing many legal and social challenges.

Students in the program will become educated in cannabis law, botany, cultivation, business management, and public health. 

All of which are essential for success in the cannabis industry. 

So, go ahead and like this video and give us a follow at Veriheal for the latest in cannabis news.
