Not just anyone can get a medical marijuana license in Canada. However, if you meet the criteria you can certainly apply, as long as you have the support of your physician or medical practitioner. You must comply with the regulations and you cannot apply for a medical marijuana license in order to obtain marijuana for someone other than yourself. In addition, you can only have 30 days’ worth of supply in your possession at any given time.
Your doctor will prescribe the dose you require, and this will be assessed along with the other medications you may be taking for your condition. Although the introduction of laws in the last ten years allows anyone who is suffering from a debilitating or terminal illness to apply for medical marijuana, it can also be prescribed for other conditions too.
These can include depression and epilepsy in some cases. However, the doctor will have to be absolutely certain that the condition or illness you have can be helped with medical marijuana and you have exhausted all other methods of relief with little or no success. To get the ball rolling you will need to complete application forms and schedule a meeting with your doctor.
