PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - The Puyallup Tribe of Indians is planning to sell recreational marijuana on tribal land in Fife.

Tribal spokesman John Weymer says the tribe is eyeing a marijuana shop where it now runs Stogie’s Cigar & Sports Lounge in Fife, about 30 miles south of Seattle.

The News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/3IEfYV) that Fife currently bans pot sales so the tribal store would be the only source of legal marijuana in the city of nearly 10,000 people.

The tribe has been moving toward recreational marijuana sales since January 2015, when it signed a compact with the state authorizing its marijuana testing lab.

After the lab opened in Fife this year, it amended the agreement to include production and sales of marijuana for medical or recreational use. It also began prepping a warehouse in the Port of Tacoma area for a grow operation.
