Minnesota’s White Earth Nation has voted to legalize medical cannabis, according to Red Lake Nation News.

Tribal members voted 994-150 to approve the measure, which legalizes the production, regulation and distribution of medical cannabis within the reservation’s borders, the news outlet reported.

The Tribal Council will be responsible for creating a regulatory framework for the medical cannabis program.

The White Earth Reservation is the state’s largest, according to Red Lake Nation News, and is the second reservation to legalize medical cannabis after the Red Lake Nation passed a medical cannabis referendum in May.
