New rules for medicinal marijuana users

The feds have announced new rules for medical marijuana users.

Patients who have been authorized by a doctor to access medical cannabis will be allowed to produce a limited amount of pot for personal use, or designate a grower to produce it for them.

But those wanting to grow their own will need to first register with Health Canada.

The new regulations take effect August 24th.

They follow a federal court decision earlier this year that found the ban on patients growing medical marijuana to be a violation of their constitutional rights.
