Chief's Special Newsletter Proposed Land Law on Cannabis Use, Sale and Production within our lands

When cannabis was legalized in the fall of 2018, Band Council responded to community concerns by issuing a moratorium on the sale and production of cannabis within our reserves until the members had an opportunity to become better informed and to express their views through a community vote.

We have since had a number of community meetings for information purposes, and it appears that at least some members are in favor of allowing properly regulated use, sale and production on our lands. Band Council has accordingly prepared a draft cannabis land law dealing with these matters for your consideration. Although Council has authority under the Land Code to enact this land law without a community vote, we also have the authority to put anything that is contentious to a community vote if we think it is advisable, and that is what we are doing on this draft land law.
