BodyStream, a Medical Marijuana Clinic is opening a location in Sault Ste. Marie. Drew Craig, Clinic Supervisor tells saultonline that a downtown, March St. location has been chosen, and will open soon.
“Lease agreements are in progress at this point, and we should be open in early July 2016.” said Drew Craig.
“Bodystream, which helps people navigate the MMPR regulations is considered a consultation service. Patients will have the service covered by OHIP. We help determine if patients are eligible for medical marijuana. We help qualified patients fill out all the paperwork properly.” said Craig. Bodystream is headquartered in southern Ontario.
The MMPR (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) is the new set of rules for growing, buying and selling medical marijuana in Canada. It outlines a system for doctors, patients and large-scale commercial growers. These growers are called Licensed Producers. The MMPR replaces the previous rules of the MMAR (Marijuana Medical Access Regulations) which were officially repealed on March 31, 2014.
If people want to access the services for Bodystream, Craig encourages them to go to the website or email him directly.

‘The MMAR were repealed on March 31, 2014; however, as a result of a Federal Court Order granted on March 21, 2014, individuals who were previously authorized to possess and produce marijuana under the MMAR, and who meet the terms of the Court Order, will be able to continue to do so on an interim basis until the Court reaches a final decision.
