Health Canada backlogs changes to ACMPR

Health Canada backlogs changes to ACMPR  are growing.  Be prepared if you call the number above, or send them email.  Medical Cannabis patients are saying that they have waited up to 4 hours on the phone and emails have not been answered.  And on April 18th, I learned of a major change that seems to have happened without an announcement from Health Canada.

If you have applied for the right to grow your own medicine, your in for a shock.  Health Canada has changed the rules or as some people have said “they have reset the goal post”.  If you applied three months ago for a permit, it would have taken that long to get approval if you sent the right documentation.  One patient sent a copy of the prescription they had been given at a Cannabis Clinic.  At these clinics, a doctor is not physically present.  You will go in a room and speak to a doctor over a webcam who will talk to you about your medical history and prescribe the appropriate dosage and recommend a Cannabis strain that will help your condition.  A prescription is then sent via email and this prescription was being accepted by Health Canada. For people who will use a Licensed Producer, this prescription is accepted by all LP’s.   Recently a patient got a prescription that was stamped original and signed by the office.   But IF YOU WANT TO GROW YOUR OWN MEDICINE,  this prescription is NOT acceptable by Health Canada anymore.  You must make an appointment with the doctor again, you then request this doctor to send an original prescription to be sent to the clinic by mail.  This will further your delay to legally grow your own as the prescription now has to be mailed, forms must be filled and then wait months for approval.  Health Canada is making medical patients criminals.  For many, the wait exceeds the time they have to grow in the climate they are in.  Many patients do not have the money for expensive lighting systems to grow indoors hydroponically.  

Health Canada backlogs changes to ACMPR are affecting thousands of Medical Patients who suffer from anxiety, depression, Cancer, Parkinsons Disease and Epilepsy.  What is Justin Trudeau doing to help this situation?  Nothing obviously. Before he hires task forces for the legalization of recreational cannabis, he needs to think about medical patients first.

**** Everyone needs to write to our Minister of Health ****

He needs to know how this delay is affecting YOU, or your family.  The law was changed to allow people to grow their own medication.  Tell him that Health Canada is delaying your rights to grow.  Or contact Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam  As taxpayers, and patients, the Government needs to respond faster to the needs of everyone.
