Consultation on Proposed Improvements to the Marihuana Medical Access Program

In response to concerns heard from Canadians, the Government of Canada announced on June 17, 2011 that it is considering improvements to the Program. The proposed improvements would reduce the risk of abuse and exploitation by criminal elements and keep our children and communities safe.

Health Canada would like to hear from Canadians about the improvements under consideration. Interested Canadians will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed improvements starting June 17, 2011. The comment period will close on July 31, 2011.

Interested Canadians are invited to provide feedback on a short discussion document by clicking on the link below titled “Consultation Document”.
