Oneida Indian Nation studying potential entry into cannabis industry


The Oneida Indian Nation hasn’t announced its stance on the sale or growth of recreational marijuana, but are looking into it.“ At this time, we are studying the issue,” said Oneida Indian Nation Vice President of Communications Joel Barkin said.

Under the new legislation, New York would be able to provide loans, grants, and incubator programs to encourage the participation in the cannabis industry by people from minority communities.

According to published reports, the Shinnecock Indian Nation in Long Island has announced plans to open a dispensary and cultivate land to grow marijuana, while the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe in Akwesasne, northeast of Massena near the New York border with Canada, is looking to grow cannabis on 20 acres of land.
