OTTAWA, Feb. 22, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - After almost ten years in the business of selling marijuana, Health Canada finally recognizes the expertise of those it had sought to exclude—medical marijuana growers and distributors operating outside the law and whose activities pre-date the existence of any legal medical marijuana framework.
Marc-Boris St-Maurice, from the Montreal Compassion Center, a medical cannabis dispensary founded in 1999, will be participating in a consultation meeting with health Canada officials and other stakeholders this Wednesday Feb 22nd, in Ottawa to share his expertise on how to produce and distribute medical marijuana.
Until now, health Canada has been loathe to acknowledge the important contribution made by those who risked, and in many cases still face legal problems for having sought only to come to the aid of those seriously ill and suffering Canadians who benefit from the use of marijuana. It is high time this expertise is recognized for the good of all those needing safe, reliable access to this life saving product.
Mr. St-Maurice, who will be attending the meeting starting at 9am, will be available for comment from 12:00 till 12:45 this Wednesday February 22nd, in the lobby of the "Minto Suite Hotel", 185 Lyon street, Ottawa
