Medical Marijuana Made Easier
Marijuana Licenses available since 2001
Medical Marijuana can be safely accessed through Health Canada’s Medical Marihuana Access Program since 2001. Despite the eligibility of most Canadian citizens to apply, the application forms can be confusing and tedious, deterring the interest of majority. A lack of common knowledge regarding the program is resulting in unnecessary criminal charges, incarceration of innocent people and millions of dollars wasted in the courts and prisons. It is making it very difficult for medical users to have safe access to their medicine or proper education about their treatment options. As this valuable information becomes more public knowledge and more marijuana users and growers become licensed, small possession charges and grow charges will become fewer and farther in between, dramatically decreasing the crime rate in our country.
When applying for medical marihuana, there is a series of forms that must be filled out by you, your doctor or legal representative. Form A- Application to Possess is necessary for every applicant to fill out. This form requires passport-sized photographs to be signed by the medical practitioner signing for your application. This form is filled out by either you or your legal representative and includes your personal information such as home address and contact information. On this form, there is an area where you choose how you would like to obtain your marihuana. You have the option of growing your own marihuana, designating someone to grow it for you or obtaining it from the federal government. Each option includes a different form for you to fill out (Form C, D or E).
There are 2 types of applicants: B1 and B2. A B1 applicant is anyone who falls under a list of specific medical conditions that marihuana has had substantial influence in treating. This list includes Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injury or disease, cancer, Aids, HIV infection, severe arthritis and epilepsy with symptoms ranging from severe pain, to persistent muscle spasms, cachexia, anorexia, weight loss, severe nausea and seizures. Form-B1 can be filled out by any medical practitioner.
A B2 application is for anyone who uses marihuana for reasons other than those specified on the B1 form. If someone is experiencing any symptoms of B1 applicable conditions, this can be described on the B2 application. B2 applicants can apply to relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, sleeping disorders, eating disorders, pain management, drug addiction and any other ailment marihuana helps them with. Form-B2 can also be filled out by any medical practitioner.
Form C,D and E are to specify where you will be obtaining your marijuana. Form C is for those who wish to grow their own medicine. This form is filled out by you or your legal representative and includes information on the grow location. Security measures to protect the grow operation and storage location must be stated on this form as well as confirmation that the property is owned by the applicant. If the property is not owned by the applicant, the owner of the proposed site must fill out Form F-Consent of property.
Form D is for those who wish to designate someone as their legal grower. This form has the same information requirements on the grow location and storage location as Form C. It also requires a criminal record check on the proposed grower to ensure that there are no preexisting drug-related charges. Form F- Consent of Property is still necessary if the grow location is not owned by the applicant or proposed grower.
Form E-1 is for applicants who wish to obtain marihuana from the federal government. This can be delivered to your house of residence or if you have made arrangements, to your medical practitioner. The cost is $5/Gram and it is tested at 12.5% THC. There is only one strain currently available from Health Canada.
Form E-2 is an application to obtain marihuana seeds from the government. It is not mandatory to buy seeds from the government, but they do provide that option. Hemp Shops across the country legally sell many varieties of different strains of cannabis, many of which help specific conditions.
Once the applications are filled out they can be mailed(registered) to Health Canada. There is an approximate 16 week filing process before the license and legal documents arrive. The hard-copy license will either be mailed with the paperwork or arrive in the mail shortly after. You can then legally possess a specified amount of marijuana anywhere in Canada.
Health Canada’s Medical Marihuana Access Program has been in play for 9 years. It has helped countless citizens improve their quality of life, medicate safely and keep their families together by avoiding unnecessary incarceration. The lack of public knowledge regarding the program however is leaving many Canadians needlessly suffering and/or incriminating themselves by supporting the black market to obtain their marijuana. Crime rates are soaring mainly due to small possession charges and passing on this important information will undoubtedly decrease those numbers. Whether it is for anxiety or grandmas’ arthritis, most Canadians are eligible to apply to use and/or grow marijuana in our country. The forms may be tedious, but by filling them out and becoming legal, tedious court battles are avoided as well as drug charges that result in limited job and/or travel opportunities.
The legal application forms are available on Health Canada’s website and on HSC listed under Useful Resources on the main page. There is a Medical Practitioner Release Form for practitioners who are uncomfortable with signing the applications. Although this form is not mandatory, and is completely optional, it can be found through this link.
