Currently under Manitoba marijuana laws, it is illegal to possess marijuana in the entire country of Canada. If you are caught with possession of marijuana, baggies, scales, or other paraphernalia, you may be charged with drug trafficking as well. Cannabis is considered a Schedule II narcotic in Canada, but Canada’s control laws are much more relaxed than in the U.S.
As of April 1, 2014, however, a new program, called the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (MMPR), will take effect – replacing the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR). Under the current program, patients who qualified were allowed to grow their own marijuana if they followed certain rules. They were also able to buy marijuana directly from Health Canada. Under the new rules, however, patients will no longer be allowed to grow marijuana. Instead, only approved private companies are allowed to produce and sell marijuana to patients.
Though it seems to be in limbo, the use of marijuana for medical purposes, established by Health Canada in 2001, defines two categories of eligible patients. Category 1 covers any symptom treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care. Category 2 is for applicants who have debilitating symptoms of medical conditions supported by their physician.
