Jon Ferry's "solution" for medical pot distribution might be more
problematic than it seems.

Only a minority of legal and licensed medical marijuana users can
afford to buy Health Canada's marijuana grown by PPS- Cannasat, which
they sell for $150 per 30 grams, plus 13 per cent HST and shipping. I
have a medical marijuana prescription of 10 grams per day, so I
couldn't afford the government pot.

Different strains of cannabis help people with different or multiple
health conditions, but our government supplies a single strain that is
weak, irradiated and tastes bad.

Pharmaceutical distribution would mean profits for growers,
pharmaceutical companies, governments, pharmacies and doctors.

Allowing people to grow their own marijuana makes it much more

Pharmacy pot? No thanks.
