Legalizing recreational marijuana is causing new hassles for medical marijuana users, according to Kim Cooper, Northern Ontario Cannabis Education and Resources CEO.

This weekend, a solidarity march is raising awareness in Timmins.

The group is meeting at 1 p.m. at Hollinger Park, with the walk starting at 2 p.m.

“Global Marijuana March has been around for over 25 years. It started off over in Europe and it expanded across the globe. Over 35 countries take part across the globe to advance legalization and rights of cannabis consumers in places that do not have legalization as of yet, so it’s a solidarity march,” explained Cooper.

It’s the second year the event is being held in town, and it will include chanting at the Timmins Police building and city hall.

Cooper noted medical marijuana has been legal for more than 15 years.

“Legalization of recreational cannabis is causing a lot of problems in the patient community such as where we can consume and patients being asked to prove that they’re patients, so we’re presented with a lot of new hassles as well as the taxation of our medicine,” she said.
