[canada] Clearing The Smoke Surrounding First Nations Cigarettes / Who Can Buy What At First Nations Smoke Shops

https://www.youtube.com/v/qfw4OYNuNCg FOR 2014-2015, the annual allocation for the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation was 3,151 cartons of cigarettes. (There are 200 cigarettes in a carton.) That number has steadily crept up over the past three years: from 2,815 cartons in 2011-2012 to 2,939 in 2012-2013 and then 3,081 in 2013-2014. The joint report looked at RCMP seizures as the measuring point, but because of a couple of different circumstances, the national police force’s seizure rates have dropped in recent years, said Ms. Malcolm. The ministry also takes into account special events held on First Nations lands. Each year, one of the biggest events held on Scugog Island is the annual pow wow, hosted by the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
