MCK announces additional Feedback Period on proposed Kahnawake Cannabis Control Law


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that an additional community feedback period of one week is taking place for the proposed Kahnaw�:ke Cannabis Control Law. The Feedback period will end next Thursday, 6 Seskehk�:wa/September at 4pm.

�While we were impressed with the feedback received in April and May, the Drafting Team feels that, after the two information sessions, it would be a good idea to offer an opportunity for additional feedback,� stated Iets�nhaienhs Rhonda Kirby who, along with Iets�nhaienhs Gina Deer, is responsible for the proposed law on behalf of the MCK.

�Canada�s legalization of the recreational use of cannabis is one of the largest shifts of public policy in many years,� she added. �It is clear that the community supports the creation of our own laws and regulations, and we are committed to getting it right. It�s very important that people have their say on the matter of cannabis.�

The draft law is posted on the Cannabis page of the Kahnaw�:ke Legislative Coordinating Commission website at

Comments can be made online or by contacting Kenits�nhaienhs Gina Deer or Rhonda Kirby, or MCK Technician Dennis Diabo. All can be reached at 450-632-7500.

Additionally, the power point presentation used at the information sessions held on 21 and 28, Sesk�ha/August are also available for viewing click here.
