P.E.I.’s first medical marijuana facility gets licence to sell
P.E.I.’s medical marijuana factory is officially licensed to sell its product by Health Canada, says the company’s co-owner.
“We’ve had a production licence to cultivate cannabis for few months now. We’ve had several crops that we’ve been able to harvest,” said Edwin Jewell, president and co-owner of Canada’s Island Garden — the only licensed facility for medical marijuana in Prince Edward Island.
“Of course the whole objective is not just to grow crops but to be able to sell it and to be where we are right now is very, very encouraging.”
Islanders can receive a prescription for medical marijuana from their doctor or health care practitioner.
