Canadian judge allows medical marijuana patients to grow their own

Canadian judge allows medical marijuana patients to grow their own

Thanks to the expostulation of four residents in British Columbia, a Canadian federal judge has deemed it legal for all medical marijuana patients in Canada to grow their own. A previous admonition by Vancouver’s Judge Michael Phelan had already allowed for some 28,000 patients to grow as long as they were licensed, but that didn’t include the rest of the patients who on Wednesday, Judge Phelan ‘s ruling declared their charter rights were contravened upon by the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. During last year’s hearings, attorney John Conroy contended that the old regulations made medical marijuana unaffordable, causing many lower income patients to illegally grow or acquire cheaper product on the black market.

Although it may be a time to celebrate for thousands of patients, the judge has given Canada’s liberal government 6 months to adapt their rules to the new injunction, which means the new law will have no effect until the 6 months have passed. It should also be stated that the ruling does not alter current recreational laws in any way, despite the fact that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has promised legalization is the direction in which he eventually wishes to move.

Kirk Tousaw, a lawyer who represented the four patients who challenged the original regulations, told the Vancouver Sun that this “historic decision represents a nearly complete victory for patients using medical cannabis in Canada,” which he also took to Twitter to celebrate!
