The Navajo Nation Council Health, Education, and Human Services Committee considered legislation this week that would allow economic development through the production of cannabis and hemp.
The legislation would amend Navajo Nation code to allow for an exception in the criminal code stating, “it shall not be unlawful for any business, as defined in 12 N.N.C. § 308 (D), to cultivate and produce cannabis or hemp, for economic, industrial, or scientific purposes.”
Committee members voted 4-0 to approve the amendment.
