New Marijuana Resort Coming To South Dakota
South Dakota will soon welcome a brand new resort that celebrates marijuana in a whole new way. The upcoming vacation destination is already under construction and has been given complete and total federal clearance for all that they are planning to do. The bad news is that there is absolutely no way that you can get in on the action, at least from a business standpoint.
The Flandreau Santee Sioux Native American tribe is already well known in the area for having a very successful casino, a 120-room hotel, and a buffalo ranch that has nearly 240 head of buffalo. The business times are good for this tribe and they are hoping that marijuana will make it even better.
Because of competition and a slowing economy, the tribe is hoping that a new business venture into the ever-increasing world of marijuana will make them even more money. As alcoholism and poverty are rampant on many tribal reservations, this is an attempt to benefit the way of life for many in the reservation.
The tribe has already planned to open the resort and the central theme will be marijuana. It will be involved in almost everything that goes on at the resort. Marijuana will be grown and sold on the reservation as well. Many are saying that this is a wonderful idea and they are expecting great things. Other tribes are waiting to see just how successful the resort is. It could become something that other tribes start all over the country.
The tribe is planning to grow and sell their own varieties of marijuana. The hope is that it will be well integrated into the nightclub, restaurant, music hall, and the arcade. The resort should be open before the end of the year. Tribe leaders say that the new destination is going to bring in an additional 2 million dollars every single month. “We want it to be an adult playground,” said tribal President Anthony Reider. “There’s nowhere else in America that has something like this.” Tribe leaders are planning a New Years Eve party to celebrate the grand opening.
While some are eager to embrace the new resort, critics are worried that it will promote a whole new onslaught of illicit activity. Many have already cried to the government for help but there is nothing the feds can do. State Attorney General of South Dakota has already made clear that the Federal government does not have a problem with this operation as long as the marijuana is not sold to anyone less than 18 years of age and as long as the marijuana is not transported to any regions where marijuana is illegal.
