Marijuana could soon be legal on the Cherokee Indian Reservation In North Carolina just three hours from Chattanooga, leaders of the tribe recently passed a resolution to allow a study on how marijuana could be used on the reservation, the study will look at whether or not they can use marijuana for medical purposes with a written recommendation or for sale in dispensaries like we have seen in Western states like in Colorado, a little over an hour away Cherokee County sheriff Derrick Palmer says he is also concerned about the future of Western North Carolina if marijuana becomes legal. Nearly 6,000 acres of private land sits in Cherokee County, Palmer says he has interviewed dozens of drug addicts that say their drug abuse started with marijuana, a recent new survey found 73 percent of the Cherokee support marijuana law reform.
