If you are looking to purchase cannabis from a store in the Kingston area, there are plenty of options west of the city on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, a community of roughly 4,000 people.
But if you were to buy cannabis from one of the more than 50 dispensaries that have set up shop on Tyendinaga, would your purchase be a legal one?
That depends on who you ask.
Provincial Attorney General Caroline Mulroney told Global News in October that unlicensed dispensaries and production facilities are illegal, with the province’s online store the only licensed shop to sell cannabis in Ontario.
However, businesses like Legacy 420, located on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, insist they are able to operate legally under their own regime.
