Medical marijuana is now legal on Cherokee land in Western NC. It’s a first in the state.

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has approved growing, selling and using medical marijuana on its lands in Western North Carolina, tribal leaders said Thursday, making their territory the first place in North Carolina where medical cannabis is legal.

The tribal council’s approval of a medical marijuana ordinance testifies to “the changing attitudes toward legal marijuana and a recognition of the growing body of evidence that supports cannabis as medicine,” Principal Chief Richard Sneed said in a statement.

 

Medical marijuana is particularly vital “for those with debilitating conditions like cancer and chronic pain,” he said.
