It's not bad enough we took their land from coast to coast and basically wiped out an entire people.....now they can't even sell cigarettes in peace? Ridiculous.

They are selling to non-indians therefore taking tax dollars from new York. They can sell to their own. Instead they are selling mass quantities to others. And if you ever stepped foot on that reservation you would see its predominantly Jon-Erik Indian!:
