Canada's Medical Marihuana Store Ltd announces New 4:1 Designated Grower Ratio for Health Canada's MMAR Program

    VICTORIA, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Canada's Medicinal Marihuana Store Ltd's
founder and CEO Ian Layfield in Victoria, BC and Toronto Division advocate
Tracy Curley are pleased that this ratio increase was a voluntary act by
Health Canada's Medicinal Marihuana Access Division. We anticipate Health
Canada's MMAR Division to announce the new 4:1 ratio for designated growers
and be implemented within 2-3 weeks. In April 2009, Health Canada announced a
2:1 grow ratio after the previous 1:1 ratio was deemed unconstitutional in a
Supreme Court ruling. This is another step forward for acceptance of marihuana
as a legal medicine and an alternative to so many of the pharmaceutical drugs
on the market today.
    In addition to providing safe, efficient and more regulated access to
medicinal marihuana, CMMS has recently been approved by Health Canada to
conduct clinical trials on a variety of methods of consumption in order to
discern the best means for the user and their ailment. As more and more
Canadians are applying for the program, there are hopes to see the growing
ratio increase exponentially. Higher growing ratios would not only make it
easier for patients to access designated growers, but eventually the increased
ratios could lower the end cost for the end user as well.
