The Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) is the new set of regulations from Health Canada 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 (LPs).

Under the new regulations, healthcare providers are the only individuals legally able to prescribe medical marijuana to patients. A physician can provide the patient with a medical document, which is similar to a prescription, which recommends the dosage and duration of time that marijuana be used.

To obtain access to medical marijuana, patients must send their medical document to a Licensed Producer, who will then send the filled prescription to the patient via mail or bonded courier. No prescription cannabinoids or medical marijuana is held on-site at the CMClinic.

The MMPR replaces the previous rules of the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR), which were officially repealed on March 31, 2014.
