The cultivation and storage of medical marijuana in Canada is controlled by the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR). If you are interested in growing medical marijuana in the country, you need to follow the guidelines set by the MMAR. Even though there is a government controlled cannabis growing company, private citizens can be involved as well.
The first thing to do is to submit an application to the government along with all your identification papers. Along with the application, you will need to include a plan for production as well as the outlets through which you plan on selling. A license to grow medical marijuana does not allow you to grow as much as you want. There is a limit to the amount that can be grown. The quantity of drug that has been produced must match with the quantity provided to the distribution centers. The cultivation will be closely tracked by relevant authorities. The MMAR also contains regulations related to the storage as well as transport of medical marijuana. The stringent laws are in place to ensure that licensed growers don’t produce too much cannabis, as this could increase illegal usage.
After you have met all the criteria and gotten the permits, you will be able to legally grow medical marijuana in Canada.
