Federal Court rules medicinal marijuana users allowed to grow their own pot

Dec 19 2017, 8:21 pm

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.
