American Indian tribes are looking to become the beneficiaries of the "green gold rush" as the legalisation of marijuana spreads from state to state.

With four states and Washington DC already allowing the recreational use of pot, and more expected to follow, cannabis cultivation is on the cusp of becoming very big business.

This is very good news for American Indians with as many as 200 tribes understood to be considering growing cannabis because of tribal land's unique legal status.
