The Canadian Association of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (CAMCD) is very pleased to have been invited by the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation to participate in a roundtable discussion being held in Vancouver today.
“CAMCD values the opportunity for input on the nature and specifics of what the legalization of cannabis should look like, and we are proud to represent a vibrant and independent cannabis sector that has existed in this country for decades,” stated Jeremy Jacob, president of CAMCD.
CAMCD has also submitted a formal response to the Task Force, highlighting the importance of including cannabis dispensaries in the new legal regime for both medical and non-medical cannabis distribution. They have also focused on the protection of patient needs going forward.
“A goal of this organization is to help bring dispensaries into a legal framework. This is the model that patients prefer, and it fits well into an array of other options that together will meet the needs of the public and the government’s goals for the legalization and regulation of cannabis in Canada. We look forward to working with all levels of government to come up with a plan for transitioning the current grey market into a vibrant and safe new legal market,” said Jacob.
