The Nipissing First Nation Cannabis Law was enacted by a quorum of Council at the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 2nd.
* IMPORTANT NOTE * NFN’s Cannabis Law may be enacted, but it will not be “in force” until there is an agreement with the government that ensures NFN has access to an inspected and safe cannabis supply for any retail stores that we allow on reserve. Once that agreement is in place, a Band Council Resolution (BCR) may be passed proclaiming the NFN Cannabis Law in force and allowing NFN to issue retail licenses.
The final draft of the law that was presented to Council on May 21, 2019 incorporated feedback from the April consultations and comments that were provided directly to our lawyer during the input period. The draft was amended slightly following the meeting to reflect feedback from Council before being enacted on July 2nd.
