Tribal sovereignty, recreational marijuana, Veterans' Commission members and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court saying the state has the right to prosecute non-Native suspects who commit crimes on tribal lands against Native Americans and supporters of a ballot measure to put recreational marijuana on the ballot turn in 164,000 signatures to the Secretary of State.

The trio also discusses the resignation by the Gov. Kevin Stitt-appointed head of the Commissioners of the Land Office after allegations of self-dealing and misappropriation of taxpayer funds, and the governor removing two members of the Oklahoma Veterans Commission who had supported his opponent in the Republican primary election.
