Three emergency room doctors at the University of Colorado hospital have published a report about the heath-related effects of marijuana legalization. The report was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, and while some of the positive health-related effects of marijuana were listed, focuses mainly on the negative impacts.
Native American tribes can legally grow and sell marijuana on their lands as long as they follow the same federal guidelines for states that have legalized it, the U.S. Justice Department announced Thursday.
The announcement came after tribes in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon asked how legalization in their states would affect them. According to Oregon U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall, who helped develop the policy, three undisclosed tribes so far have expressed interest in growing and selling on their land—one in Washington, one in California, and one in the Midwest.
