Who is eligible

Thousands of Canadians are Federally licensed to possess and use medical marijuana. Medical marijuana is a proven safe, virtually side effect-free alternative to all pharmaceuticals. The only way to legally protect yourself is through Health Canada’s Marijuana for Marihuana for Medical Purpose Regulations (MMPR) which came into effect on March 31, 2014.

Under the MMPR program now in effect the decision to use marijuana for medical purposes is now between the patient and physician alone. Within the Greenleaf Medical Clinic a patient must have a prior diagnosis within the past five years from a Canadian physician. All medical documentation must be accessible from the physician, records department, clinic or hospital.

Please note that we cannot provide you with a family doctor or specialist for your primary care. We can provide you with a qualified doctor from the Greenleaf Medical Clinic with special interests in medical marijuana.
