Canada Launches Access to Medical Marihuana Card

source: Digital Journal
EXISTING MMAR DONE OTTAWA, Oct. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - National Access Canada is launching the Medical Marihuana Card, Canada's first card to provide patients with safe and clinical access to medical marihuana. Cards will soon be accepted at over 40 in-person locations across Canada

"Our focus is on patient safety and to provide treatment options which will ultimately improve patient outcomes. Medical marihuana should be dispensed to Canadians in a safe, convenient environment that provides health awareness and reduces risk factors," said Alex Abellan, C.E.O of National Access Canada. "Our solution, the National Access Medical Marihuana Card will provide patients with safe access to their medicine, on-site pharmaceutical support and is already held by 5000 patients with 15,000 currently being processed."  

Medical marihuana is increasingly accepted as a therapeutic treatment not only in Canada but around the world for a range of conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, glaucoma, asthma, collagen-induced arthritis, HIV-associated sensory neuropathy, chronic pain and depression among other ailments. Currently over 37,000 Canadians are qualified to use medical marihuana by the current Medical Marihuana Access Regulations Program. Health Canada projects an increase to 58,000 patients by 2014 and 450,000 by 2024.  

The National Access Canada Medical Marihuana Card will offer patients access to the first medical marihuana dispensaries that have implemented traditional pharmaceutical software. Patients will have access to an on-site pharmacist who will counsel the patient on correct dosage, drug interactions and also provide contraindication feedback. With the use of pharmaceutical software, these locations will work collaboratively to allow patients safe access to their medicine wherever they are in Canada.

 Over 40 locations spanning all provinces and territories will be open by March 31st

"Our card and our services bridge the gap between the patient and the licensed producer," says Abellan. "By tracking consumption and storing health information with patient consent, we are able to bank patient's supply enabling us to dispense in smaller doses. By working with multiple Health Canada approved licensed producers we will be able to provide patients with more strain varieties resulting in more treatment options. We will take a clinical approach to dispensing this narcotic." 

Over and above the certainty and reassurance that this system provides to patients, the National Access Medical Marihuana Card will be a safe alternative to the existing system. Currently, medical marihuana is distributed through letter carriers and other couriers posing security and privacy risks to patients and carriers.  These benefits and safeguards are what Canadians should expect and demand when it comes to dispensing this narcotic.
