Frequently Asked Questions: Removing 30-Day Limit Period
Removing 30-Day Limit Period
Why has the 30-day limitation period been removed?
The previous Canadian medical cannabis legislation called Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) included a “30-day limit rule”, meaning a federally licensed seller could not dispense to a patient more than 30 times the daily dosage in a 30-day period, and no more than 150 grams of product at any one time.
By removing the 30-day limit rule, has this changed my Veterans Affairs or Insurance Coverage?
There are no changes in your monthly or yearly allocation for reimbursement coverage. As always, anything purchased outside of the monthly or yearly allocation will not be covered. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Shoppers Cannabis Care Team.
What are the rules for public possession of cannabis?
The amount on your medical document is related to your public possession limit, meaning how much you can carry with you. So if you purchase a large quantity of cannabis (which is fully allowable within the regulations) you may only carry the monthly amount from your authorized quantity.
