Earlier today, we published a report about the provincial government announcing their specific plans on legalizing recreational marijuana.

In the meantime, medicinal marijuana users might soon be able to get their cannabis from their local Shoppers Drug Mart outlet.

Last night, Ontario-based cannabis manufacturer Aphria Inc. announced that it has entered an agreement to become a medicinal marijuana supplier for Shoppers Drug Mart.

Some restrictions apply

The contract is subject to Health Canada’s ruling on Shoppers Drug Mart’s application to be a licensed marijuana retailer.

Although the medical marijuana would be available through Shoppers Drug Mart, the sales would have to occur online as Canadian laws strictly regulate the sale of medical cannabis through retail pharmacies.

According to a Huffington Post report, Aphria has stated that it will provide the pharmacy with four strains of dried marijuana flower in two different sizes and four cannabis oils to sell, and all products will have the ‘Aphria’ brand name.

“We have an impeccable record cultivating and producing high-quality, medical-grade cannabis,” stated Vic Neufeld, CEO of Aphria.

“These traits make us a strong partner for an organization looking to serve and support Canadian patients.”
