Media Release: Canada-Wide Protests to respond to Health Canada’s Marihuana for Medical purposes Regulations

By admin | February 19, 2013

Victoria, BC.- The International Hempology 101 Society is spearheading a nationwide protest against Health Canada’s proposed Marihuana for Medical Proposes Regulations (MMPR), which are a response to the many court cases that have found the current scheme, the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations, to be in clear violation of section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (CCRF). Our main contention against the proposed changes is that they remove patients’ right to grow their own medicine.

Voices from all across Canada will gather outside their MP’s offices to protest the MMPR on Thursday, February 21st, with 115 ridings confirmed to date. We are also encouraging anyone who can’t make it out to participate in a ‘phone jam’ aimed at the office of our Minister of Health, Leona Aglukkaq, as well as a letter writing campaign. The deadline for public consultation on the matter is on February 28th.
