Peepeekisis Cree Nation is home to a new band-owned and operated cannabis dispensary.
Joint Adventures had its grand opening Saturday afternoon.
Colin Stonechild, a headman (similar to a councillor), said the business was born out of a desire to develop the economy on Peepeekisis.
“We’re creating a business to be able to create more opportunity for our people,” he said.
Stonechild said the dispensary employs 15 people. The renovation and construction of the business also brought job opportunities into the community.
