According to a recent report from the Navajo-Hopi Observer, two members of the Navajo Nation, Dineh Benally and Farley BlueEyes, have been formally charged with the illegal cultivation of marijuana. This case, unfolding in Window Rock, Arizona, marks a significant development in an ongoing legal saga that has spanned several years and included accusations of forced labor. On January 4th, tribal prosecutors accused the pair of operating a large marijuana growing operation around Shiprock, New Mexico. Both men are expected to face arraignment later this month, according to the report.
