Marihuana For Medical Purposes Regulations
The MARIHUANA FOR MEDICAL PURPOSES REGULATIONS (MMPR) was a set of Canadian regulations enacted in July 2013 concerning the production, distribution and use of medical marijuana . (Note: The government of Canada and some other civic agencies' Web sites use the spelling "marihuana" but most other Canadians, including news agencies, use the United States' spelling of marijuana .) Portions of the law become effective on October 1, 2013, March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2015. The law was struck down as unconstitutional by the Federal Courts due to the inability for patients to grow their own medicine. The new act put forward is the ACMPR. The MMPR program replaces the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR). The MMAR was enacted in July 2001. Prior to a federal injunction, the MMAR program was to end on March 31, 2014. The MMAR program was intended to clearly define the circumstances and the manner in which access to marihuana for medical purposes would be permitted. It contained three main components: authorizations to possess dried marihuana; licences to produce marihuana, which include Personal-Use Production Licences and Designated-Person Production Licences; and access to supply of marihuana seeds or dried marihuana. The MMPR was introduced in response to concerns from stakeholders that the MMAR was open to abuse

Germany
and New Zealand. Like most pharmacologically-active secondary metabolites of plants, THC is a lipid found in Cannabis
Cannabis
is assumed to be involved in self-defense , perhaps against herbivores . THC also possesses high UV-B (280–315 nm) absorption properties, which, it has been speculated, could protect the plant from harmful UV radiation exposure. THC, along with its double bond isomers and their stereoisomers, is one of only three cannabinoids scheduled by the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances (the other two are dimethylheptylpyran and parahexyl ). It was listed under Schedule I in 1971, but reclassified to Schedule II in 1991 following a recommendation from the WHO . Based on subsequent studies, the WHO has recommended the reclassification to the less-stringent Schedule III. Cannabis
