Tribal officials said they were approached by MMJ to begin the process
The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe has entered into a joint development agreement with cannabis growing pharmaceutical arm MMJ BioPharma Cultivation Inc., to lease and develop about 20 acres of Tribal land.
Tribal officials said they were approached by MMJ to begin the process. The property in discussion had previously been designated by the Tribe as a business park.
“The project isn’t a typical medical or recreational marijuana deal where cannabis is grown and sold in the commercial market,” members of the Tewáthahón:ni Corporation Board of Managers said.
MMJ is looking to grow marijuana on Tribal land under a special Drug Enforcement Administration growing permit. The marijuana would only be sold to medical facilities, labs, government agencies, academic and educational entities and “other entities that are conducting research or developing drugs that contain cannabis.”
