Shoppers Drug Mart gets license to sell medical marijuana

The drug store chain has been granted a license to sell medical marijuana online.

That includes dried and fresh cannabis, as well as plants, seeds and oil.
   
A website has been set up by the company, which says that patients ``with a valid medical document will soon be able to purchase a wide selection of medical cannabis products'' from Shoppers.
    
Shoppers applied for a license in October 2016.  It was finally granted in September.

Shoppers has said that it has no interest in producing medical cannabis, but the licence is required in order to sell the product to patients.
