On Thursday, February 21st, Spinal Cord Injury BC hosted a PeerWeb Info Session with Rielle Capler, a PHD student and co-founder of the Canadian Association of Medicinal Cannabis Dispensaries.
Rielle’s webinar “The Current State of Medical Cannabis in Canada,” covered the therapeutic uses of cannabis and also gave information on services that dispensaries provide.
There was great discussion on the recently proposed changes to regulations for accessing medical marijuana.
