Ho-Chunk announced Saturday that its General Council voted to reverse a policy that made the use and sale of marijuana on tribal lands illegal. Sixty-three percent of members voted in favor, 34 percent voted against and 3 percent abstained.
Will that include their casinos?
The Ho-Chunk Nation is not located on one continuous land base, such as a reservation,
but has scattered communities and acreage.
• HCN Trust Land Acreage – 3,535
• HCN Fee Simple Acreage – 5,328
• Counties where HCN Trust Lands are located: Adams, Clark, Crawford, Dane,
Eau Claire, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Marathon, Monroe, Sauk, Shawano,
Vernon & Wood Counties in Wisconsin and also in the State of Illinois.
• Additionally, large numbers of tribal members live in Minneapolis, Madison,
Milwaukee, and Chicago
I think the answer to your question depends on how tribal land is defined for these purposes.
Is the HCN trust land in Dane County a casino, or what?
