Legal, regulated and affordable cannabis is easily accessible in Toronto, now with Same-day Delivery
TORONTO, May 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Canopy Growth Corporation (Canopy Growth) (TSXV: CGC), parent company of licensed cannabis producers Tweed and Bedrocan Canada, is pleased to advise that Bruce Linton, the Chairman & CEO of Canopy Growth and Ronan Levy, Executive Director of Canadian Cannabis Clinics, will today be addressing cannabis patients in Toronto seeking access to medical cannabis.
At a press conference to be held at 11:00 am at Toronto City Hall, Linton and Levy will clarify that as Torontonians and Toronto City Council wrestle with the issue of illegal dispensary proliferation across the City, a legal, affordable and accessible source for medical cannabis exists right here in Toronto.
Bedrocan Canada, based in Toronto, produces regulated, quality-controlled medical cannabis, with all cannabis varieties now priced at only $5 per gram under Bedrocan's sector-leading True Compassionate Pricing, which ensures affordability for all cannabis patients. Moreover, today, Bedrocan Canada is announcing same-day delivery for legally registered patients in Toronto.
"Torontonians who are seeking a reliable supply of medical cannabis can now turn to the most affordable solution in the City, delivered same-day to their door, and rest assured there is no question about the legality and origins of their cannabis supply," said Linton. "Working with partners like Canadian Cannabis Clinics, we can ensure that any patient who requires access to doctors specializing in cannabis as a treatment, can find the support they need to access the legal system where medically appropriate."
Canadian Cannabis Clinics offers a variety of services to ensure that Torontonians seeking to discuss medical cannabis with a healthcare practitioner can find the support they need. "There is a misconception that finding a doctor knowledgeable in cannabis medicine is a challenge for Torontonians," said Levy. "But with six clinic locations across the GTA, and seventeen across Ontario, patients can get the support they need and quickly and easily register with a legal, regulated supply of cannabis through companies such as Bedrocan Canada and Tweed. Best of all, the appointments are covered by OHIP so there is absolutely no fee to the patient to see one of our physicians."
As Torontonians and policy-makers seek out solutions to address the growing concern over unregulated dispensaries selling cannabis throughout Toronto, they should know that high-quality, affordable, Toronto-produced cannabis is legally accessible. Now with same day delivery.
Bruce Linton and Ronan Levy will be available to answer questions at Toronto City Hall at 11:00 AM today.
