TORONTO – Shoppers Drug Mart received a license to sell medical marijuana online.
The list of authorized cannabis sellers and producers of Health Canada has been updated to reflect that the pharmacy can sell dry and fresh cannabis, as well as plants, seeds and oil.
A website was created by the company, which says patients "with a valid medical document will soon be able to buy a wide selection of medical cannabis products" from buyers.
The company received a medical marijuana producer license in September, after initially applying in October 2016.
Buyers have said they have no interest in producing medical cannabis, but the license is needed to sell the product to patients.
Under current Canada Health Ministry regulations for the medical pot, the only method of legal distribution is by mailing licensed producers directly to patients.
