let’s talk answers FAQ

IS MEDICAL MARIJUANA LEGAL IN CANADA?

Yes. Health Canada has approved the use of marijuana as a legal medicine since 2001 and there are 25 Health Canada regulated Licensed Producers (listed here) who sell it to Canadians. NAC is working within the guidelines of Health Canada’s MMPR (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) to help Canadians have informed, legal, safe and responsible access.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN MARIJUANA BE PRESCRIBED FOR?

Although there are no official guidelines for its use for specific conditions, the MMPR allows medical marijuana to be recommended as treatment for almost any condition or aliment.

HOW DOES NAC HELP?

NAC makes the complex process of Canada’s legal medical marijuana program accessible and simple. See NAC‘s steps to access Health Canada’s MMPR program safely and legally with physician and pharmacist support here.

WHAT IS THE MMPR?

MMPR stands for Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations and is the new set of rules replacing the previous rules of the MMAR. This change took place officially on March 31, 2014 and outlines the updated rules for growing, buying and selling medical marijuana in Canada. It has developed a formal system for doctors, patients and large-scale commercial growers known as Licensed Producers (LPs).

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR THE MMPR?

In order to purchase medical marijuana from a Licensed Producer (LP), patients must have a medical document, similar to a prescription. NAC quickly connects members to a network of physicians for a medical assessment and if it’s determined that medical marijuana is a good treatment option, NAC helps members navigate the paperwork and submit all required medical documents. NAC also assists members in selecting a Health Canada LP, provides guidance on the types of medical cannabis for specific ailments and advises members on safe usage by reviewing existing prescription medications to avoid any drug interaction issues.

WHERE CAN I BUY MEDICAL MARIJUANA?

Under the rules of the MMPR, Licensed Producers are the only legal source of medical marijuana. The MMPR prohibits storefronts and dispensaries and all sales must be done online or by phone, and delivered by mail.
