A Minnesota-Based Tribe will Begin Selling Recreational Cannabis After August 1st. While Minnesota is still developing a dispensary license program for legal cannabis, the Red Lake Nation is getting a head start on sales. The tribe recently voted on July 11th to legalize adult-use cannabis starting on August 1st. After that date, cannabis will be legal to purchase both for tribal and non-tribal members. Legal recreational cannabis will become purchasable across Minnesota then, although retail dispensaries will not be allowed to open for 12 to 18 months. First, state officials must create a regulatory foundation for dispensary licensing.
Part historian and part artist, Fred Farrar chronicled the Black Hills from the turn of the century through the depression of the 1930s. He was one of the few invaluable pioneer photographers, working with glass plate negatives out of a mobile darkroom. His collection of photographs records the transformation and urbanization of the American West with themes like the cowboy, the Native American, the soldier, transportation, mining, lumbering, and town building. Farrar was born on August 11th in 1885 in Cherokee, Iowa. At the age of two, he arrived with his parents in Rapid City. While places like Lead and Deadwood were considered cities with brick-paved streets, Rapid was still a cow town with boardwalks and dirt (sometimes mud) streets.
