Oglala Sioux Tribe to vote on two marijuana referendums and casino alcohol

Oglala Sioux Tribe members will vote in March on whether marijuana should be legalized on the Pine Ridge Reservation and whether alcohol should be served in its casinos.

Voters will answer three separate questions on March 10. Should medical marijuana be available on the reservation? Should recreational marijuana be available? Also, should alcohol be sold at Prairie Wind Casino near Oglala and East Wind Casino near Martin?

Elections Commission executive Sandra Old Horse says the referendums requite a majority of votes to pass and the decisions would be binding, meaning the tribal council must implement them.
