give me doughnuts: You know what? Nobody cares.

You want to keep your people from crossing into Nebraska, buying beer, and then taking in back onto the reservation?

Build a fence. Set up check-points. You've got tribal police, so use them. Stop crying about the big mean beer companies who are selling a legal product to customers who can legally purchase it.

Those are racist, just ask the southern border states.

If they legalized alcohol sales on reserve they could at least tax the sales and make some money for the addiction treatment.

some facts

40,000 persons, 35% of which are under the age of 16.

4,000,000 cans of beer? means a mere 100 cans of beer for each person. or two per week. oh yeah.. such a huge problem.

Hey, if they can make people fall into that, call it justice.

The term you are looking for is 'Usury', something not in their native tongue I guess.

There's something called "self control" that they might want to look into...also something called "rehab" for those that don't have it.
