    I sent my ACMPR paperwork into Health Canada (by registered mail) a month ago and have not heard anything back. Everytime I call the 1-866 line I get the same response : "your file has been received and somebody is working on it". They won't give any estimate of how long it might take to get a response to the application. Does this describe everybody's situation ? Has anybody received their paperwork to grow themselves lately ?

    It took me 5 weeks to get my paperwork back from HC. Shitty thing is my doc would only sign for 3 months at a time due to college rules here in Alberta regarding gpd increases so I have another appointment next Tuesday to resubmit for my "renewal" so that I can grow out a crop. At least he doesn't charge for his appointments or the paperwork.

    So, here we are later on in the same day. Just got back from the mailbox and there was the envelope from Ottawa with my ACMPR paperwork. Approved for 5 grams per day; 19 plants indoors or 5 plants outdoors; and storage of 1875 grams. These are exactly the same numbers as were on my MMAR papers since 2009. It is four weeks tomorrow since I sent the forms to Health Canada. I guess the computer that the call center folks were referring to on the phone this morning does not really tell them much at all. "Somebody is working on your file." Right. Interesting that they no longer send out the paperwork via Priority Post - just came in the regular mail this time.

    Is marijuana or cannabis on the return address?
    What I mean is does the envelope look like you have an interest in mmj, or is it just a generic return address?

    Nothing to identiify the envelope or contents as anything related to marijuana at all. Generic return address.

    Isn't it supposed to be 5 plants indoor for every g per day?
    So 5 g a day is 25 plants

    That would be the case if you were only growing indoors. My permit is for both indoors (winter) and outdoors (summer). And in that situation they only give you a total of 24. It was exactly the same under the MMAR.

    This is a shit show....seriously?...they want it treated like other drugs they best be writing scripts on the little pad and not requiring doctors to fill out pages like we're asking for plutonium...on the surface we've got a great new program...but really, it's just as difficult and apparently sometimes more difficult for patients to get what they need....thank god for the charter...

    WHEN CANADA NEEDED LEADERSHIP WE GOT A WET BEHIND THE EARS LITTLE PISS ANT.

    what did anyone expect - the government was going to help us ????
    They blow smoke up my ass with their new regs that are made to give us access. the media sits back a cracks jokes about weed. the doctors wonder how they ended up being the gate keepers for something HC says is not even a medicine.

    nothing has changed except for what clown runs the shit show and a couple new letters "a" &"c". the lousy producers still want to own us. people are still going to jail.

    so where are the lawyers who are protecting our rights ( I jokingly refer to it as our rights as of yet we have none)

    time for a revolution in our joke-mocracy . If we don't stand up we will never be treated like we are better than dog shit........

    ps fuck trudeau......
