RCMP shuts down cannabis shop on the Kwaw-Kwaw-Apilt First Nation in B.C.

 

The legalization of cannabis may be just a few months away in Canada – but First Nations in Chilliwack, British Columbia aren’t waiting for October to roll around.

In fact, they want to provide high-quality cannabis that originates from First Nation businesses – and they want to be part of the new post industry.

But as it turns out, the RCMP think differently.

  1. What about the salmon they are selling? Thats illegal too isn’t it. RCMP have been letting that continue for many years. Why pick and choose?

    1. I think DFO, the federal fisheries department, handles the issue of salmon sales. Often bands who sell salmon do so under agreements with the DFO.

    2. Not illegal to sell. Check your BC wide coalition handbook again and then check on the ruling from the Supreme Court allowing First Nations to sell their catch. I think that over rules your handbook.
