Dennis Smith's curator insight, March 9, 2014 8:36 AM

This is good news for the patients if the approval sticks. This is also another case of whether the Federal or State governments have the final say for legalization. The US Attorney General has made it clear that it is the former, and this can put the local industries on shaky ground. Health Canada (HC) is way ahead of the US on the Medical Marijuana issue. In order to ensure quality, safety and crime control, HC has closed the existing 'Mom & Pop' providers.


HC has now licensed nine Medical Marijuana producers under its new approval process. (There is a deadline of April this year.) However, supply is not expected to meet demand. In response to the situation, a new company, Med Can Marijuana is now providing venture capital for Canadian Medical Marijuana growers so they can increase production. You can learn more about the program at paul@medcanmarijuana.com,more about Med Can Marijuana at http://medcanmarijuana.com/know-about-medical-marijuana/or more about Med Can Marijuana’s financial policy at http://medcanmarijuana.com/canadian-medical-marijuana-stock-good-investment/.

This is another example of the uncertainty pervading the US Medical Marijuana question. There are obviously questions at the State level and the debate about whether the Federal or State governments have the final say for legalization continues. The US Attorney General has made it clear that it is the former, and this can put the local industries on shaky ground.


Health Canada is way ahead of the US on the Medical Marijuana issue. In order to ensure quality, safety and crime control, Health Canada has closed the existing 'Mom & Pop' providers. These are being replaced with a limited number of licensed providers. And now there is even venture capital available to help Medical Marijuana growers increase capacity.
