TORONTO — Shoppers Drug Mart has been granted a licence to sell medical marijuana online.
Health Canada’s list of authorized cannabis sellers and producers has been updated to reflect that the pharmacy can sell dried and fresh cannabis, as well as plants, seeds and oil.
A website has been set up by the company, which says that patients “with a valid medical document will soon be able to purchase a wide selection of medical cannabis products” from Shoppers.
A spokeswoman for Shoppers’ parent company Loblaw Companies Ltd. says it’s too soon to say when people will be able to start making orders.
She says the company is still working through a “technical issue” with Health Canada.
The company was granted a medical marijuana producer licence in September, after initially applying in October 2016. [Read More @ CTV News]
