The New (ACMPR) Regulations
On August 24, 2016, Health Canada introduced the new Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).
Under the ACMPR, authorized patients can choose to purchase their medical marijuana from licensed producers (like the previous MMPR), grow for themselves, or designate a grower (like the former MMAR).
Patients interested in medical marijuana must get a medical document from an authorized health care professional, which specifies a period of use (up to 1 year), and the daily recommended quantity of marijuana in grams.
For those interested in home growing or designating a grower, authorized patients with a doctor’s prescription must register with Health Canada. More information on registration and application forms.
Canadians that choose to grow their own medical marijuana must operated under legal parameters set by Health Canada. This includes registration with Health Canada, adherence to set plant limits depending on personal prescription amounts, as well as possession and storage limits.
Once Health Canada has approved a medical marijuana patient to grow their own or designate someone to do so – on their behalf, starting material, such as seeds and clones must be purchased from a licensed producer.
