DOJ say tribes can decide whether to legalize pot

Updated:
GRANTS PASS, OREGON -

(AP) - The U.S. Justice Department says Indian tribes can grow and sell marijuana on their lands, even in states that haven't legalized pot.

Oregon U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall was co-chair of a group that developed the policy announced Thursday.

Marshall says the policy was developed after a handful of tribes asked how legalization of pot in states like Oregon and Washington would apply to them.

Marshall insists that federal prosecution priorities that exist for individual states also apply to tribes. That means no sales outside reservations.

The Justice Department has said it will tolerate state legalization as long as a series of conditions are followed - including banning access to minors and the export of pot outside state boundaries.
