There Was a Supreme Court Opinion That Was Released on July 9th, and It May Have Some Serious Implications to Your Business
Video Transcribed: Hey guys, are you a medical marijuana business owner in the state of Oklahoma? Well, you need to pay attention to this video. There was a Supreme Court opinion that was released today, July 9th, and it may have some serious implications to your business.
The reason being is if you live in any of this area in the state of Oklahoma, Southern Tulsa, all of these other counties, anywhere in that area, that area has just been ruled to be tribal land, according to the Oklahoma Supreme court, in the case, McGirt v. Oklahoma.
Now that is a case that does not directly speak to medical marijuana in the state of Oklahoma. It speaks to Native American tribal rights and their interplays between state, tribal and federal regulations. Now, the reason why this is important to your business is because as per Oklahoma’s statutes, a medical marijuana business cannot operate on tribal lands.
With the Supreme Court opinion, seeing this area of the state of Oklahoma as being tribal lands, there might be sweeping implications when it comes to state and federal funding for the state of Oklahoma in these areas, certain interplays with state regulations, including medical marijuana laws.
Obviously this is a developing issue. I will have to read over the opinion a couple of times to see exactly what might happen because of this ruling. And we’ll just have to go on from there.
Also, this might be an opportunity for us in the industry to get up off the bench and be active when it comes to making sure that our property and our business rights are being upheld.
