Medical Info

In order to successfully become licensed by Health Canada and sign up with VIMM [1], you will need support and assistance from your doctor. It’s therefore very important that you present your case for receiving medical marijuana clearly and thoroughly.

Some doctors may frown upon marijuana use in general or might be concerned about the negative health effects of smoking marijuana.
