Cannabis Clinic opens shop in Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH-Canadian Cannabis Clinics have opened a location in Peterborough. Ironically the store front is in former Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro’s old constituency office at 1600 Lansdowne Street.

The clinic says they don’t have any product for sale on the premises and a referrral from a doctor is required to set up an appointment. The clinic touts itself as the number one hub for medical marijuana in the region. They say they provide informaiton about the “benefits” of the drug as well as how it can be used in pain management.

Here’s how it works:

First you would discuss the possibility of using medical marijuana with your family doctor. The doctor can then refer you to Canadian Cannabis. From there a Doctor from Canadian Cannabis will help you determine if medical marijuana is best for you and if so register you to a licensed producer in the Peterborough area.

The Federal Conservatives have been leading the opposition to legalized pot. In a spirited debate on the issue in the House of Commons on Tuesday, Conservative Party allegedly  referred to the bill legalizing pot as a “wacky campaign promise” and a “misguided crusade.” The Liberal government is “determined to force this bill” on the police and people of Canada, he said, “whatever the cost to Canadian society.” according to The Cannabist Magazine.

In 2015 Conservative Stephen Harper who was running for another term as Prime Minister expressed his vehement opposition to marijuana calling it “infinitely worse” than tobacco during a campaign stop in Montreal.According to the CBC the Conservatives often link marijuana use to increased risks of mental health issues, such as psychosis and schizophrenia, but medical research on that is divided.
