MONTREAL, June 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Medical Cannabis Access Society (MCAS), a non-profit dispensary based in Montreal, is concerned about patient-care under the federal government's new medical marijuana regulations.
"The prohibition on storefront dispensing, personal production, and derivative products will impede the reasonable access to which patients are entitled," said Adam Greenblatt, Executive Director. "While some improvements have been made in this iteration of the federal medical cannabis program, there are still big holes in the regulations as proposed which will have adverse impacts on patient care."
"It is a crime policy masquerading as health policy," continued Greenblatt. "The pretext of protecting public safety is being grossly exaggerated and unfairly paints all patients as criminals."
