The 2nd National Indigenous Cannabis and Hemp Conference (NICHC) took place from February 19 to 21, at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, following in the footsteps of the inaugural conference held on Nov.18-21 on the Tsuut'ina Nation. The underlining theme of these conferences is that although the passage of Bill C-45 legalizing recreational cannabis creates tremendous economic opportunity for the country, it also created unprecedented social and political concerns for Indigenous communities.
