Saskatchewan’s marijuana legislation was announced earlier this week and the province said in an email that it hasn’t made any decision yet regarding a provincial sales tax on marijuana.
But according to both the federal and provincial governments, First Nations people with a valid certificate of Indian Status card will be tax exempt when buying marijuana from a business located on reserve land.
The federal government has confirmed that any First Nations owned and operated business on reserve land will not have to pay GST/HST on any cannabis products.
