SALAMANCA, N.Y. (AP) - The Seneca Indian Nation is weighing whether to get into the medical marijuana business.

Members of the western New York tribe are set to vote Tuesday on a referendum that would allow the tribal council to draft laws and regulations surrounding the manufacture, use and distribution of medical marijuana.

Seneca Nation President Maurice John Sr. says such a venture would involve many economic, social, health and regulatory factors. But he says leaders first want to see if it’s something Seneca members want leaders to pursue.

Voting on the referendum takes place on the nation’s Allegany and Cattaraugus territories from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.
