Via Marcel Gignac: A Licensed Producer taking a different approach. Last week I was invited along with some members of Maritimers Unite for Medical Marijuana and a few others to a focus group meeting put on by a Licensed Producer. It was very much like the Health Canada consultations that I attended a few years ago with the main difference being... patients were invited and not barred by Health Canada.
Health Canada did not want to hear from the ones that would be negatively impacted, just the ones that would benefit. This left out all patients that grow or need growers. This approach from The Truro Herbal Company (The THC) in Truro, NS is the complete opposite.
They want to hear from you the public that uses or is thinking about using Medicinal Cannabis. They want your honest feedback. The THC's goal is to build a working relationship with the patients that benefit all.
While The THC would love to be my supplier, they realize that I and many others will always grow, we have no other choice. But they also realize that the Medicinal Cannabis market in Canada is going to grow and there is more than enough room for a Harmonized Program with both home growers that can't afford to buy and Licensed Producers that can provide to the ones that have no way to grow.
This is what is making The Truro Herbal Company different. Supporting patients that can grow and offering support to those that can't.
They are now asking you for your assistance by having you fill out a simple survey. http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2072245/public Your honest answers will help shape the future. When you are done with the survey please feel free to share it with your friends and family.
