Northwest Tribes Oppose Pot Legalization
An organization representing 57 Northwest Indian tribes has announced its opposition to marijuana legalization, specifically in Alaska and Oregon.
The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians announced a partnership Tuesday with the Smart Approaches to Marijuana project, which supports a treatment, health-first marijuana policy.
The tribal group says it supports efforts to reduce marijuana use, especially among young people.
The group represents tribes in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Nevada, Alaska and Northern California.
