More than 20 per cent of the people who need help with medical marijuana use in Manitoba are people with a serious illness, and many of them live in rural areas.
In order to access it, people must pay an additional $10 per gram to cover the cost of getting their medicine.
This comes at a cost, however, because it doesn’t cover the supply chain, including dispensaries, dispensaries that make their own products and pharmacies that provide the medication.
The price also depends on how much the province charges for the drugs.
It could be much higher if the cost is covered by a new, provincial-provincial agreement.
The province’s agreement with the federal government means that patients can get medical marijuana if they pay the prescribed price.
It also means patients with chronic conditions, including cancer and HIV, can get it.
In other words, if you can afford to pay the price, you can use medical marijuana.
That means you can get the medication without having to go through the dispensary, which often has low turnover and has no direct contact with the patients.
It’s a relief for some people, especially those who are not in treatment.
And it’s good for the environment.
“I’m actually getting the medication because of the price,” said Danielle Prentice, who lives in a remote area of Winnipeg.
“But I don’t have a car, and it’s hard to drive in the winter, so it’s a lot of work to get it.”
The problem with dispensaries The dispensaries have been around for decades.
They’re not illegal under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, which means they are legal.
But there are some things they can’t do, like selling a product that isn’t what is prescribed.
So when a patient asks to get a prescription for a medication they have no access to, it is difficult to make a determination whether that’s what is best for them.
“We have to have a balance between the needs of the patient and the safety of the dispensary,” said Mark McManus, president of the Manitoba Patients Coalition, which represents patients.
“A lot of patients are struggling to make that call.
If they don’t feel comfortable with that decision, it’s difficult to find a good alternative.”
McManis said the dispensaries often get mixed reviews.
“They’re a good source of supply, and they’re a very effective source of care for a lot less money,” he said.
“When they say they don.t have a high turnover rate, it just makes it difficult to know whether they’re doing the right thing.”
There are some dispensaries that have become popular with patients who are in treatment, because they’re convenient and the prices are lower.
But McManens said it’s important to understand that a high-volume dispensary doesn’t necessarily mean patients are getting a quality service.
“There are very, very, high prices,” he explained.
“And there are very high turnover rates.
There are a lot more people going through a dispensary and taking advantage of it, than there are people who are actually getting a product.”
A better alternative for patients If you want to buy marijuana without having a problem with your doctor, you have to apply for a dispensing licence.
It will typically cost $200, which is why many Manitoba residents don’t apply.
The process involves filling out a form with the province and the dispensary.
It then takes about 10 days to get approved.
Once approved, the dispensing system opens in your local municipality, and you can order the medicine online.
You also can purchase medical marijuana at licensed dispensaries.
For example, the Health Canada website will list a number of dispensaries that offer marijuana in Manitoba, but you’ll have to pay a fee of $10 to get your medicine.
If you’re in Manitoba and need help buying the medicine, you could use a mobile app like the one that’s currently available.
If your medication is for cancer or HIV, you’ll need to get an appointment at a hospital, which can be more expensive than a dispensary.
If there are other complications, such as a seizure or a stroke, you should contact a health care provider.
McManuses said he is hopeful Manitoba will eventually come up with a better way to distribute medical marijuana, but there are many hurdles ahead.
“The best way to manage a high volume of people is to make sure you have enough to get the medicine out,” he advised.

You need to have someone who’s going to make the decision for you.
