Am I Eligible for Medical Marijuana?
Medical marijuana is currently used by thousands of Canadians for a wide range of conditions. People choose medical marijuana over other medications because it is considered a safe and effective alternative for treating many disorders, without the adverse side effects of some pharmaceutical products. Since the 2014 ruling, the decision about whether or not to use medical marijuana rests solely between the patient and his or her physician. Patients who are deemed eligible to receive medical marijuana under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (ACMPR) by their physician must provide appropriate medical documents that confirm the diagnosis.
