MMPR: Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations

The Canadian government has set in place a new set of regulation that takes full affect as of April 1st, 2014.  Under the new regulations,  patients will no longer be able to grow their own medicine in their homes as under the old MMAR regulations.  As of April 1st, patients can order their medicine directly from large scale licensed producers.  The medicine is then delivered directly to their doorstep.  For more information on the new regulations click on the following link: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/marihuana/index-eng.php
