Today Health Canada Minister Jane Philpott has decided not to appeal Justice Phelan’s decision that requires amendments to the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).
According to the Minister ““We will respect the decision of the federal court and as such we are now in a situation where we have responsibility to address the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations and they will be amended accordingly in order to address the concerns of the court.”
Under Justice Phelan’s decision Health Canada has until mid-August to make those changes to the MMPR. TheraCann will therefore continue to keep you updated on any proposed specifics of these changes and how they will be implemented.
