OTTAWA, Dec. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Following the release of the Task Force on Marijuana Legalization and Regulation report scheduled for this morning, the Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) will have spokespersons available to comment on the content of the report, specifically in regards to the Association's continued calls for improving the existing framework for medical cannabis through pharmacist management and dispensing.
Based on expert consultations, third-party research, and input from our members and their patients, CPhA believes that the best way to enhance patient safety, education, and appropriate access is through pharmacists' oversight. More information on our position is available here.
CPhA is among a group of experts, stakeholders, and health professionals that were selected by the Task Force to participate in the in-person roundtable discussions. CPhA's submission to the Task Force can be found here.
