Top Canadian pharmacy to sell marijuana

Medical Marijuana has been debated on for a very long time.
In US some states have already legalized it. It has also been gathered that states like Florida and California are also proposing new laws on it. For medical or recreational purposes).

But surprisingly a big pharmacy in Canada 'Shoppers Drug Mart' recently  confirmed that  it had filed an application with the Canadian government earlier this year to be a licensed distributor.

 This will allow pharmacists to dispense cannabis at its hundreds of stores across the nation.
"We are hopeful that the Government of Canada will revise the current regulations to allow dispensing at pharmacy," a Shoppers spokesperson said in a statement.

CNN reports that currently, Canadian patients can only receive medical marijuana through the mail from licensed producers. Shoppers Drug Mart said that dispensing it at pharmacies "would increase access, safety, quality and security for the thousands of Canadians who use the drug as part of their medication therapy."

Medical cannabis is used by tens of thousands of Canadians for therapeutic purposes.

A spokesperson for competitor Rexall told CNN Money it is monitoring the situation, but not applying for a distribution license at this point.
