I have over 10 years of experience dealing with cannabis law and Health Canada’s Medical Marijuana Access Regulations program (MMAR). I am also a Federally Licenced Health Canada Exemptee who will also assist Canadians in obtaining a Federal Licence to possess or produce cannabis for medical purposes, referring Canadians to the best Doctor to suit your needs.
