For the last year, Stephen Bennett has been keeping a watchful eye over a medical cannabis grow-op next door to his home.
What his neighbours in this upscale Wasaga Beach neighbourhood are doing is legal. While the law only allows for four plants to be grown on a property for recreational use, a person growing under Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations could theoretically grow an unlimited number.
The determining factor is how many grams per day are prescribed by a physician, and approved by Health Canada. One website touting the ability to refer a patient to a “compassionate” physician for a prescription suggested an application to Health Canada for 95 grams a day would likely be approved.
That would allow a licensee to grow more than 440 plants indoors — and the rules permit up to four registrations at the same location.
