Guidance from the College of Physicians and Surgeons
The Government of Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) establish the legal framework that enables patients to obtain authorization to possess dried marijuana for medical purposes. Under these regulations, physicians have primary responsibility for the decision to authorize patient use of dried marijuana for medical purposes.
Health Canada Regulations - ACMPR
The Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) came into force in August 2016. The regulations set out a framework for commercial production by licensed producers responsible for the production and distribution of quality-controlled fresh or dried marijuana or cannabis oil or starting materials (i.e., marijuana seeds and plants) in secure and sanitary conditions. The regulations also set out provisions for individuals to produce a limited amount of cannabis for their own medical purposes or to designate someone to produce it for them. Transitional provisions, consequential amendments, and provisions are also included.
