Canadian pharmacy giant Shoppers Drug Mart has expanded its online medical cannabis platform to Canada’s East Coast.

As of today, residents of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island can go online on the company’s website to make their purchase, which will then be mailed to them.

Residents who don’t currently have the proper medical documentation authorizing the use of medical cannabis can get it by setting up a consultation online.

“There’s access to telemedicine where a person can have an individual consultation with a physician who can determine whether cannabis is right for them,” said Mike Boivin, a pharmacist consultant from Ontario who is a member of the Shoppers Drug Mart Advisory Board on Medical Cannabis.

Boivin said not having to go to a doctor’s office will make medical cannabis more accessible for those who could benefit from it.
