And a North Carolina tribal nation might offer loopholes for nontribal members who want medical cannabis

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.
