First Indigenous Cannabis Licence Holder Can Finally Turn the Lights on at New Dispensary
Zachary Lacelle, owner of Northern Zen Cannabis wasn’t sure what to expect on the opening weekend of his new business.
The recreational cannabis dispensary is located on Osprey Miikan on Nipissing First Nations, just off Highway 17, west of North Bay.
“It is going pretty good. I just hope that the community supports local business,” said Lacelle.
“I was one of eight to receive a licence when Ontario did a second lottery. I didn’t get to open first here, but I was the first aboriginal licence holder in Ontario. That is something to be proud of. ”
