Marihuana for Medical Purposes Consulting under the MMPR

The Federal government has introduced new laws with respect to the production and distribution of Medical Marihuana.  The new legislation is called the Marihuana for Medical Purposes (the “MMPR”) and it governs the Medical Marihuana industry from application to operation.  In addition to the MMPR, Medical Marihuana is also governed by the Narcotic Control Regulations and the Food and Drug Act.  Health Canada is the responsible ministry for the administration of this new federal program.

Under the new laws, only commercially viable individuals and corporations shall be allowed to grow, distribute, research and sell medical marihuana to the Canadian market.  Once an applicant is approved by Health Canada, they become Licensed Producers under the MMPR and are subject to a bundle of regulatory rights and obligations.
