We love his cat picture !  Attention Green Country growers! Cultivation of marijuana is a felony on the Muscogee Creek Reservation.

I’m Tulsa attorney, James Wirth.

 

We’re about to discuss the Muscogee Creek Nation Code and how it deals with cultivation. All right. So all of this is relevant because of the McGirt Decision that came out in June of 2020 where the United States Supreme Court held that the Muscogee Creek Tribal Reservation was never disestablished through Oklahoma Statehood. And what that means is that there’s a good chunk of Northeast Oklahoma, including most of Tulsa County, and all of them, many of the surrounding counties, are actually part of the Muscogee Creek Tribal Reservation, and native Americans living in that area are going to be subject to the laws of the Muscogee Creek Nation, in addition to state law and federal law.

So if you are/have a grow operation, and you’re Native American, you’re going to be subject to these laws. So it’s important to know what they say.

So here’s what they say. If you go to Muscogee Creek Nation Code, which I’ve got another video that shows you where to get that, you want to go to Title 14, Section 2-519, and it’s regarding The Cultivation of Illegal Plants. And it’s pretty simple.

It says: “The crime of cultivation of illegal plants occurs when a person knowingly cultivates or produces an illegal plant or permits the cultivation of it.”
