Canadian pharmacy chain applies to dispense medical marijuana
Canada’s largest pharmacy chain, Shoppers Drug Mart, has formally applied to the federal government to be a distributor of medical marijuana.
If Shoppers Drug Mart is allowed to sell medical marijuana by Health Canada, it would mark a major shift in Canada’s medical marijuana market.
Currently, Canadian medical cannabis patients must either grow their own cannabis or order it from one of the 36 licensed cultivation companies in the country, which then mail it to patients.
Though Shoppers Drug Mart has applied to be a licensed producer, it would not grow its own medical marijuana, CBC News
