The Cayuga Nation in New York plans to develop a cannabis venture for adults. This plan is to be established before starting recreational pot sales. The launching of the adult-use cannabis cultivation venture is scheduled to happen some months before the state licensing recreational pot sales starts to serve the clients.
According to the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA), adults can legally possess cannabis. However, regulators are working hard to manage the licensing of adult-use cannabis ventures except for retailers. The Native American tribal governments can regulate the production of marijuana and the revenues on the tribal lands.
During the previous summer period, the Shinnecock Nation declared that plans for commercial cannabis operations were set to begin. Currently, Cayuga Nation is home to hemp and CBD products.
The spokesperson of the Cannabis Management stated that the tribal nations in New York have the liberty of implementing and enacting its cannabis regulatory structure.
In addition, states can enter into contracts with tribes via the tribal compacts to include them in the state program upon adhering to the terms. The Cayuga Nation has decided to exercise its power to self-regulate marijuana, coming up with a cultivation facility at Gakwiyo Garden.
