Salish made right move


Kudos to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes council and their direction on marijuana use on their sovereign Indian nation as reported in the May 13 IR. I suspect that other Indian nations will seek a similar path. The elders’ statement that “The result was a consensus from the elders that marijuana has no cultural significance and that we, as a people, have other indigenous means to deal with pain” is clearly something that the state of Montana should use to re-evaluate the citizens initiative passed in 2004.
