Do I Still Need To Be Registered As A Patient?
July 12, 2018
Post-legalization it will be possible to legally obtain cannabis outside of the medical cannabis process. However, the rules will be different for recreational use versus medical use. Your rights as a patient are only protected as long as you are obtaining your supply through the government-mandated ACMPR process. That includes your rights to possess and carry, where and how you can use your medication, and in some cases may even impact what product you can obtain and how much you pay for it. For those reasons, we strongly encourage people who require cannabis for medical purposes to follow the ACMPR process.
