Marijuana Resort - The First - To Open In South Dakota
The Santee Sioux is opening the nation’s first marijuana resort on its reservation in South Dakota. The experiment could offer a new money-making model for tribes nationwide seeking economic opportunities beyond casinos.
Santee Sioux leaders plan to grow their own marijuana and sell it in a smoking lounge that will include a nightclub, arcade games, bar and food service and, eventually, slot machines and an outdoor music venue.
The tribal president, Anthony Reider, said, “There’s nowhere else in America that has something like this.”
The tribe said the project could generate up to $2m a month in profit, and work is already under way on the growing facility.
