As cannabis becomes legalized, a community leader is calling for more public information in his Indigenous language. In late April, Chief Clifford Daniels of Behchoko told CBC he wants to see information about the proposed cannabis laws in his community’s language, Tlicho. “We really need to inform the public. And it shouldn’t be up to the community governments to pick up that cost,” he said. According to the Government of the Northwest Territories and Health Canada, communities like Daniels’ will get what they need. According to Health Canada, the agency partnered with Drug-Free Kids on a Cannabis Talk Kit that helps people talk to youth about the substance, gives information about its health effects, and explains the current laws.
