Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR)
August 24, 2016
Part 2 — Production for Own Medical Purposes and Production by a Designated Person
Part 2 of the ACMPR sets out a registration framework that allows for personal-use and designated production of cannabis (including cultivation of plants and alteration of products) for medical purposes.
Note: The majority of Part 2 incorporates the requirements of the former MMAR and relevant section 56 CDSA exemptions that respond to the decision in R. v. Smith with required modifications to incorporate the production, storage and possession of products other than dried marihuana or plants. New provisions that did not form part of the previous framework include the following: •Proof of possession and registration can be demonstrated through a registration certificate issued by Health Canada.
• Starting materials (i.e. seeds and plants) can be obtained through licensed producers.
