The Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch has outlined their framework for legalization which gives authority to Indigenous Nations. Indigenous Nations can:- choose not to recommend approval of any cannabis retail store licenses - impose restrictions on where cannabis retail stores can be located- limit the hours that cannabis retail stores can operate- charge fees for assessing applications
Cowichan Tribes will create and implement an engagement strategy to help determine our memberships' views on the retail sales of non-medical cannabis and public consumption on Cowichan Tribes lands with the goal of developing local regulations reflective of the communities values.
Interested parties are encouraged to take a few minutes to fill out our short survey. Individual responses will remain anonymous.
