Cannabis moratorium still in place: Garden River First Nation –

Public reminded of moratorium a week after illegal dispensary raided by police

Garden River First Nation (GRFN) says its moratorium on the production and sale of cannabis remains in place until the First Nation determines its position on the issue.

On Wednesday, the First Nation issued a notice reminding its citizens of the moratorium – a week after two men were charged by Anishinabek Police Service in relation to the operation of an illegal cannabis dispensary in Garden River.

The moratorium on cannabis sales and production was originally introduced by GRFN in September 2018.

“Currently, GRFN has no legal framework for cannabis production and/or sales, therefore, these sales remain illegal and licencing will not be brought forward to council until we as a community determine our next steps through consultation,” reads the notice. “Failure to adhere to the moratorium may jeopardize future participation in the cannabis industry.”
