CARP Halton Chapter Community Meetings in November: Medical Marijuana

The use of marijuana for medical purposes has been legal in Canada for many years. With all of the publicity around the recent legalization for recreational use we thought you would be interested to hear more about its medical uses.

For our community meetings in November we have therefore invited a presenter from CARP affinity partner, Cannimed Therapeutics Inc., who will speak on the subject of Medical Marijuana.

This will be followed by a question and answer session.

Do you have questions about access to marijuana as medicine? Did you know that the Government of Canada has permitted the use of marijuana as medicine since 2001 and has recently amended the rules to make it more accessible to patients in need?

Did you know that there are a variety of medical cannabis distribution methods, including edible oils and vaporization?

Could Medical Marijuana help you?

We anticipate there will be a lot of questions. We want to ensure that we answer as many of them as possible. We encourage you to write your questions down and bring them to the meeting. Prior to the Q&A session we will collect your written questions. This will make it easier for our presenter to consolidate and answer them for the benefit of all in attendance.

CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. operates as a biopharmaceutical company. The company focuses on producing pharmaceutical-grade cannabis.

Our Milton meeting will take place on Wednesday November 14th beginning at 6.30pm at the Seniors Activity Centre, 500 Childs Drive, Milton.

Our Burlington meeting will take place on Thursday November 22nd beginning at 6.30pm at the Seniors Centre, 2285 New Street, Burlington.

Doors will open at both locations at 6.30pm with the main meeting taking place between 7.00pm and 8.45pm. Coffee and tea will be available. Treats for our Milton meeting will be supplied by Revera and at Burlington by Chartwell Retirement Residences. We would like to thank them on behalf of everyone in attendance for their generosity.

The meetings will begin with a short welcoming address from our Chapter President Tom Carrothers. Tom will also provide a brief update on your CARP Halton Chapter and CARP National activities.

This will be followed by our featured presentation.

There will be a break at the midway point which will allow time to socialize with fellow members and to visit our sponsors. We encourage you to chat with our sponsors and gather more information about the services they provide. Halton Chapter thanks our sponsors for their support at all of our meetings.
