Reserve puts ban on cannabis sales

WHITEFISH RIVER — The community of Whitefish River First Nation say there will be no pot sales in their territory when recreational cannabis becomes legal.

According to band officials the decision was made because First Nations are being targeted by people wanting to set up dispensaries on reserves where jurisdiction and legal framework about the dispensaries isn’t clear.

Ontario is scheduled to begin legal online cannabis sales to the public this October with plans to allow retail sales in storefronts in 2019.
