A U.S. District Judge ruled on the Narragansett Smoke Shop showdown of earlier this year and ruled that the raid was LEGAL. The most important line in the whole story, in my opinion, is:

"The Narragansetts may have some sovereign and self-government rights on their tribal land, but the tribe cannot decide on its own which state laws it will obey, Smith [the judge]said."

You can't pick and choose when you want to abide by state laws and when you don't, Chief Sachem Thomas.
