Tribes are rightfully considered sovereign governments with the authority to make many of their own laws. This includes drug policy and marijuana legalization. The federal government shouldn’t interfere with this authority or punish tribes for exercising it.
Marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, and the provision of funds and services by the federal government should be contingent upon tribes’ compliance with federal laws, including the federal marijuana prohibition.
