However, terms of the change already rejected by at least 1 chief
The provincial government is hoping a rule change can “level the playing field” when it comes to cannabis stores in Saskatchewan.
An order in council signed on July 28 states that First Nations will no longer have to secure a permit from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA), the government body in charge of regulating the liquor and cannabis industries, in order to operate on-reserve cannabis stores.
However, the province will still require First Nations to establish some sort of regulatory framework and “enter into an agreement with SLGA,” a plan that has already been rejected by at least one First Nations chief.
