WHAT IS HAPPENING: One of our core objectives is to make medicinal cannabis available in a brick and mortar environment. Many patients visit or rely on dispensaries in their communities to supplement the shortcomings of the legal medical cannabis system/process.  In August 2017 Mr. Justice Lofchik of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice agreed and ordered that a local cannabis dispensary could remain open on the condition they sell cannabis only to patients with a valid medical document.
