CANADA: The Penticton Indian Band is looking into cultivating medical marijuana on their land, after being contacted by a company interested in doing so.
Chief Jonathan Kruger said they were recently approached by Kaneh Bosm BioTechnology to see if the band was interested in doing a joint venture.
“The PIB is going through a land use planning process with the community and there is a long list the commuity created of what they would like to see, and medical marijuana and hemp production was on that list,” he said.
Band members put the cultivation on the list because some band members are using medical marijuana for healing. Many have also shared their heartbreaking stories of complications using other medication, which have really been eye opening, said the chief.
