TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - MediJean is pleased to announce that
starting today it will be hosting a month-long online debate on the
subject of medical marijuana. The Medical Marijuana Debates will
invite the public, patients, doctors, law enforcement personnel, and
politicians to take part by exchanging their comments, views, and
experiences with this important medicine.
"As a leader in this new industry, we felt it was important to host a
national debate in order to raise awareness around medical marijuana,"
said Anton Mattadeen, chief strategy officer at MediJean. "Our goal
with this debate is to spur conversation around medical marijuana and
bring key issues and public input onto a national stage at a scale that
has never been done."
The medical marijuana industry needs informed voices as it develops.
Mattadeen says this is why MediJean is going to great efforts to host
programs such as the Medical Marijuana Debates that will provide the
public, patients, medical professionals and other stakeholders with
industry-leading resources that cannot be found anywhere else.
Health Canada announced in June new regulations that will change the way
Canadians access marijuana for medical purposes. These regulations
require patients who need medical marijuana to receive a prescription
from a doctor or nurse practitioner and have their medicine shipped
directly to them from a Health Canada approved Licensed Producer.
"As Canada is transitioning into the new regulations, it's important to
move the dialogue around medical marijuana to a point where we can have
an honest and fact-based discussion," said Mattadeen. "MediJean is
committed to providing doctors, patients and the public with
information they can use to explore the topic, become aware of the
various viewpoints and ultimately make more informed decisions on
The debate will take place in an online forum, where the public,
doctors, nurse practitioners and other industry stakeholders will
weigh-in on discussions about medical marijuana.
The moderated debate is being promoted across Canada within the Quebecor
network, including on Canoe.ca, The Toronto Sun, Ottawa Sun, Calgary Sun, Edmonton Sun, Winnipeg Sun,
London Free Press, Journal de Montreal and Journal de Quebec. MediJean and independent journalists at The Medical Marijuana Review will publish articles and research at medicalmarijuana.medijean.com and medireview.com, respectively.
MediJean is leading the rebirth of medical marijuana through a laser
focus on research, quality and patient experience by implementing best

will understand and safely prescribe it within a clinical framework,
patients will have access to clean and affordable medicine, and

of medical marijuana in the years ahead. To learn more about MediJean
