Shoppers Drug Mart has been granted a license to sell medical cannabis through the mail.
According to Health Canada’s list of authorized cultivators, processors and sellers, Shoppers can sell cannabis in dried, fresh and oil form. They will also be able to sell plants and seeds.
Shoppers received approval earlier this year to become a licensed medical marijuana producer allowing them to dispense medical cannabis to patients.
The drug store chain has already signed supply deals with a number of producers.
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.
While you will need a prescription from your doctor, you will not be able to get extra Optimum points on your marijuana purchase.
