Saskatchewan First Nation With Unlicensed Cannabis Store Sent Warning Letter

The Crown agency responsible for overseeing cannabis sales in Saskatchewan has sent a warning letter to a First Nation that opened an unlicensed pot store.

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) said provincial and federal legislation still applies on reserve land.

It said the Muscowpetung Saulteaux First Nation must have a provincial licence to open a pot store legally.

The letter also said that cannabis for commercial sale needs to be produced by someone with a federal licence to grow it.

The First Nation opened its cannabis store last week in the northeast of Regina.
