Canadian medical marijuana patients have a right to tasty pot cookies and other cannabis products, the Supreme Court of Canada said Thursday.
In a stinging decision, a unanimous seven-justice bench said the government’s medical pot program was constitutionally flawed, breached patients’ rights and was not saved under section one of the Charter.
“Inhaling marihuana (the archaic legal spelling) can present health risks and is less effective for some conditions than administration of cannabis derivative,” the country’s highest bench said in an unsigned ruling.
There is no connection between the prohibition on non‑dried forms of medical marihuana and the health and safety of the patients who qualify for legal access, the court added.
