Muscogee (Creek) Nation passed legislation that would allow certain exemptions related to medical cannabis within the reservation boundaries.
NCA 20-083 amended Title 14 Crimes & Punishment section E and W that would exempt medical cannabis license holders from being in possession of a controlled dangerous substance as long as they are in compliance under Oklahoma state law.
The legislation also establishes new law under Title 14 entitled, “Medical Marijuana Exception; Application and Limitations.”
Section A of the new law states, “it shall not be unlawful for any person to grow, process, dispense, test, possess, or use cannabis in any form in the Nation’s Indian country under a valid medical cannabis license issued by the Oklahoma State Department of Health as long as such person is in compliance with all medical cannabis license laws and regulations under Oklahoma State law.”
