ACMPR - New Medical Marijuana Regulations
The New Health Canada Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) Highlights:
The number of plants a patient can grow is based on the amount of grams in a prescription from the doctor. For example, someone with a prescription for the use of 1 gram of medical marijuana per day, can grow 5 plants indoors, or 2 plants outdoors.
Health Canada estimates that 1 indoor plant will likely produce 30 grams of cannabis, with 3 crops in 1 year, and 1 outdoor plant will produce 250 grams of marijuana in 1 year.
If the production of plants is partial indoors/partial outdoors, every 1 gram per day of dried marijuana = 4 plants indoors and 1 plant outdoors.
