Cappo wouldn't talk about what was discussed except to say the meeting was positive.

The First Nation northeast of Regina has said it has a right to make its own cannabis rules.

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, which oversees cannabis sales, says the First Nation must have a provincial licence to open a pot store legally.

The Crown corporation has sent a warning letter to the First Nation saying provincial and federal legislation still applies on reserve land.
