The Nation’s First Marijuana “Resort” to Open in South Dakota

Talk about high profits.
American Indians have held a leading role in the casino industry since 1987, when the Supreme Court ruled that gambling could not be barred in their sovereign nations. But on one reservation in South Dakota, the Flandreau Santee Sioux Indian tribe is soon to open a new type of “adult playground”: a marijuana resort.
Set to begin selling its first joints on New Year’s Eve, the Associated Press reported Tuesday, the resort will grow its own marijuana and feature a smoking lounge with food and bar service, in addition to a nightclub. Santee Sioux leaders, including tribal president Anthony Reider, plan to eventually add slot machines and an outdoor music venue to the hotspot.
