Understanding Medical Cannabis

Important Information Session for CARP Members on Medicinal Cannabis, Sat. February 20th

Do you have questions about access to marijuana as medicine?

Did you know that the Government of Canada has permitted the use of marijuana as medicine since 2001 and has recently amended the rules to make it more accessible to patients in need?

Did you know that there are a variety of medical cannabis distribution methods, including edible oils and vaporization?

Do you want to know how to speak to your doctor to see if medicinal marijuana is right for you?

Medical cannabis has been used by patients to treat the symptoms related to common conditions including:
