The latest Canadian Cannabis Update podcast is from Reefer MEDness and it zeroes in on the taxation of medical cannabis.
“Did you know medical cannabis is taxed? That is weirder than you might think,” podcast hosts write. “All other blood pressure pills, diabetes pills and depression pills that go through a pharmacy are not taxed. Yet medical cannabis, prescribed by a doctor or other health care professional is taxed.”
“Ashleigh Brown (@Ashleigh02112447) is a medical cannabis patient, founder of the self help cannabis group SheCann (@shecannabis) and Community Manager and Patient Liaison at Strainprint. She is also an uber cannabis patient advocate. Listen to Ashleigh talk about how taxes increase her struggles to afford medicinal cannabis and increase the struggles of other patients.”
