Cannabis in the United States: It’s legal in many states, and the laws have either changed or become more regulated concerning usage and the amounts people can buy.
Although Federally, Cannabis is a Schedule 1 classification drug, some states have legalized medical cannabis sales, and recreational sales are still illegal. Some states have fully legalized both recreational and medical use, so Cannabis dispensaries have the option to apply for either license.
As the website of DISA- Defense Information Systems Agency have updated their information on legal Cannabis states; the status is as follows:

The legal license offered to Cannabis dispensaries to sell medical products is based on customers having doctors certified and state-approved certificates for the patient. The drug treats symptoms of nausea for patients undergoing cancer treatment, anxiety, chronic pain, depression, fibromyalgia, stress, and other illnesses. The doctor is licensed to prescribe whatever treatment they see fit for their patients’ relief.
These states are able to sell medical cannabis with some restrictions. They cannot use at the dispensary they buy, online purchases are allowed in some states, but delivery is not. The customer has to go pick it up at the dispensary. Anyone who offers advertising or delivery of cannabis should not be trusted.
Indigenous Nations and Legalized Cannabis
Indigenous Nations throughout Turtle Island are licensed to use both recreation and medical cannabis.
- Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe and Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe in South Dakota
- Suquamish Tribe and Squaxin Island Tribe in Washington State
- Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians inNorth Carolina
- St. Regis Mohawk Tribe in New York
Although these Indigenous Nations throughout Turtle Island are legal to use Cannabis, both recreationally and medically, there are still laws that govern indigenous laws. Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, for example, is able to cultivate plants for the tribe alone.
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is not able to sell cannabis for recreation. They can sell it medically and cultivate it since August 2021 and transport up to one ounce. The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe can legally grow only 12 plants. All tribes are covered by law for both recreational and medical use, but they have restrictions.
Both medical and recreational use of Cannabis in the United States is determined by the laws of the providing state. It’s still classified federally as a Schedule 1 drug, and the US does have the power to override state legislation at will. The customers must make sure they stay within the laws of their state when using and having on their person.
