Stop Arresting Patients and Stop Raiding Dispensaries, Say Medical Pot Users


Concerns about access voiced Saturday at 12th Global Marijuana Rally in Halifax.

A rally and march held in Halifax Saturday highlighted lingering questions for medical cannabis users once marijuana is legalized in Canada this summer.

Dozens of people attended the 12th Global Marijuana Rally and March at Victoria Park. It was organized by the Maritimers Unite for Medical Marijuana Society, a registered not-for-profit organization that advocates for patients who use cannabis for medication.

“We have huge concerns about the fate of medical cannabis dispensaries in this province. They are simply indispensable for patients who require them. The government certainly doesn’t have a constitutional program and it makes it difficult for some patients to access their medicine,” said Debbie Stultz-Giffin, chair of the society.
