The Federal Court has struck down the ban on people growing their own medical marijuana and ruled that users are, indeed, allowed to grow their own pot.
In a ruling handed down today in Vancouver, the court has ruled the former Conservative government’s Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations violates the Charter.
The government has 6 months to re-write the rules.
This ruling comes as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government vows to legalize marijuana in general, although the framework for that has not been revealed.
More to come…
