Seated in a small cluster of wooden benches dubbed the Circle of Friends, Rob Mahy passed around a container of homemade chocolate turtles. Laughter and chit-chat fills the warm air as the friends take turns plucking out a chocolate and popping it into their mouths before it starts to melt.

You won’t find this chocolate in a store. It is made with cannabis.

Mahy, of Meaford, leads a group of 1,200 people, mostly seniors, who say they have been healed and have had their dignity restored through the consumption of homegrown and homemade cannabis products. The group, called MEND, short for Mother Earth’s Natural Design, turns cannabis into chocolates, brownies, coconut oil butter, tincture and capsules.

We do this “to help make medicine for our beautiful neighbours and friends. It’s not about thumbing our nose at the man,” Mahy noted.

Mahy discovered medical cannabis through a friend. In 2000, Mahy broke his back in three places and suffered terrible pain and limited mobility.
