Menominee tribal members endorse marijuana proposals

KESHENA— Members of the Menominee Indian Tribe have voted yes to allowing both recreational and medicinal use of marijuana on their northeastern Wisconsin reservation.

The tribe announced the results Friday. The votes are advisory only, meaning it's up to tribal leaders on the next step.

About 58 percent of those voting said yes on recreational use of marijuana. The medicinal question passed by an even bigger margin, about 77 percent.

About 13 percent of the tribe's 9,000 members cast ballots.

The possibility comes on the heels of the tribe's unsuccessful effort to open a casino in Kenosha.
