Muscogee (Creek) Nation will allow specific exemptions related to medical marijuana within the reservation boundaries. Federal and tribal law does not recognize cannabis as a legal drug, and a Tulsa attorney spoke out early to warn licensed patients of McGirt’s possible legal ramifications. Under the new legislation, patients with state licenses would be exempt from the tribe’s Title 14, regarding being in possession of a controlled dangerous substance, as long as they are in compliance under Oklahoma law. The tribe had established a task force after the McGirt v Oklahoma ruling to address jurisdictional issues likely to arise from the decision.
