Monday’s federal election was a historic milestone in many ways, including the fact that for the first time, Canadians were given a chance to vote on the future of cannabis policy in our nation. Prime Minister-Elect Trudeau has pledged to legalize, control and regulate adult access to cannabis for non-medical use, and Tilray is optimistic that an evidence-based cannabis policy informed by public health principles may bring positive change for Canada’s medical cannabis patients. We want to assure our valued patients that we remain firmly committed to providing the best service, selection and supply of high-quality medical cannabis in Canada.
We are hopeful that the Liberal government will recognize the medical utility of cannabis, and be supportive of increased patient access. Tilray will continue working with Health Canada, the new government, the Canadian Medical Cannabis Council, and other key stakeholders to further our efforts towards private and public insurance cost coverage for cannabis, and to increase access and use options for patients.
We’re proud to be part of the MMPR, honoured to continue to serve and represent the needs of Tilray patients, and excited to see what positive changes may come about with this change in government.
