The Northwest Territories Liquor and Cannabis Commission (NTLCC) has cut the price of cannabis products by 10 per cent.

The drop in price comes with the effort to end illegal cannabis sales across the territory.

“We will continue to assess the operations of the Northwest Territories Liquor and Cannabis Commission to find more ways to curb the illegal sale of cannabis in the Northwest Territories in a socially responsible manner,” says Caroline Wawzonek, minister of Finance.

Consumers can buy cannabis from five liquor store locations across the territory (Yellowknife, Hay River, Fort Smith, Norman Wells, and Fort Simpson) and online through the NTLCC’s website.

CKLB radio has reached out to the GNWT on how the price cut will effect the industry moving forward.
