By John Gutekunst | Parker Pioneer

The Colorado River Indian Tribes are looking at getting into the growing hemp business in Arizona and the nation. They are considering adopting an ordinance regarding the production of industrial hemp on the CRIT Reservation. A public hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25 in the Tribal Council Chambers, which are located in the Tribal office complex at the corner of Mohave Road and Second Avenue (Agency Road).

According to the announcement of the hearing from the Tribes, the ordinance will serve the following purposes:

– To promote the production of hemp on Tribal land and the development of new commercial markets for Tribal enterprises through the sale of hemp products.

– To establish a regulatory framework for Tribal hemp production which maximizes opportunities for the growth of the hemp industry on Tribal land consistent with Tribal and Federal law.
