Marihuana For Medical Purpose Regulations (MMPR)
On June 19, 2013 the Government of Canada passed into legislation the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (the MMPR) and in so doing legalized the right of a "licensed producer" to "possess, produce, sell, provide, ship, deliver, transport and destroy marihuana" and to "sell, provide, ship, deliver, transport and destroy cannabis, other than marihuana" (section 12(1)(a) and (c)).
To become a "licensed producer" under the MMPR an "Application to Become a Licensed Producer Under the Marihuana For Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR)" must be submitted to Health Canada for review and approval.
Benchmark Labs has been providing MMPR Application assistance to interested parties wishing to become "Licensed Producers" under the MMPR and offers such assistance through its Franchise Agreement Program.
Under the terms of the Franchise Agreement, the SYSTEM provided by Benchmark Labs to its Franchisee's completes sections 2.b Corporation, 3.c Proposed Alternate Responsible Person in Charge (A/RPIC), 10. Quality Assurance Pre-Licensing Report and 11. Record Keeping requirements of the MMPR.
Applications to the MMPR are received by Health Canada on a "first come / first serve" basis and therefore those successful Licensed Producers will have a distinct competitive advantage in the market place.
