Cannabis Control Law regulations posted for 30-day Feedback period


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to advise the community that the draft Regulations for the Kahnaw�:ke Cannabis Control Law are now posted for a 30-day Feedback Period.

The Feedback period will end on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 4pm.

�This is the core of the regulations � basically, the main components that, once enacted, will allow the application process to begin,� said Iets�nhaienhs Tonya Perron, who is the Lead on the Cannabis file. �The Kahnaw�:ke Cannabis Control Board (KCCB) devoted a great deal of time and effort to the drafting of these regulations to insure that consideration was given to the varying concerns within the community, from both those in support of the industry as well as those opposed to it.�

Once the 30-day period is completed, the KCCB will review and analyze the feedback.

The Kahnaw�:ke Cannabis Control Law was enacted on 10, Tsoth�hrha/December 2018. Work on the law began when Canada introduced its (then proposed) Cannabis Act in April 2017. The law is in response to Canada�s legalization of recreational cannabis in October 2018. The main focus of Kahnaw�:ke�s law is to protect the health and safety of the community, to protect the youth by restricting their access and exposure to cannabis and cannabis by-products, and to deter illicit and illegal activities in relation to cannabis on the Territory.

At the time of the passage of the Kahnaw�:ke Cannabis Control Law, it was announced that there would be a delayed implementation of certain provisions of the law relating to the issuance of any licenses until such time as the Cannabis Control Board was established and the applicable regulations are enacted.
