Halifax Medical Marijuana Lounge Opening This Weekend

CANADA:  Halifax’s first marijuana lounge is officially opening on Gottingen Street this weekend amid questions of its legality.

The lounge is called Farm Assists and while it welcomes medical marijuana users, smoking is not allowed.

Users can use a vaporizer, which doesn’t create smoke. The people must be licensed to use medical marijuana.

The front of the store is filled with display cases featuring bongs and marijuana accessories. A lounge area is just beyond that.

 

One Lucky Canadian Will Win Free Medical Marijuana For A Year

CANADA:  In what’s being called the first contest of its kind in Canada, one lucky patient will receive free medical marijuana for a year as part of an effort by Lift (www.liftmj.com) to raise awareness about the benefits of Health Canada‘s new medical marijuana program. Lift is an online hub that provides accurate, unbiased, timely and patient-sourced information about the program, its Licensed Producers, and the numerous marijuana strains offered for various health conditions.

The Get Happy Canada contest launched on Monday, June 9, 2014. A spokesperson for Lift stated the following: “Many Canadians who suffer from debilitating medical conditions are not aware of the benefits of medical marijuana or how to access Health Canada’s new medical marijuana program. Furthermore, not all patients can afford the medicine that they need. So we launched the Get Happy Canada contest to help one lucky Canadian while raising awareness about Canada’s new program and how it can benefit patients.”

Lift will not be supplying medical marijuana directly; the contest winner will need to obtain a prescription from a doctor and order from a Licensed Producer. In turn, Lift will cover the cost of their marijuana (up to one gram per day, for 365 days). The contest ends July 18, 2014.
