A BC Court of Appeal ruling on using marijuana or cannabis extracts in other products is being welcomed by Nanaimo-based Tilray.
The Court of Appeal overturned the conviction of a Victoria man charged in 2009 with trafficking because he used marijuana to make cookies and cannabis creams for a compassion club.
The new medical marijuana regulations don’t allow licensed growers like Tilary to distribute anything other than raw cannabis. But, the ruling says the government needs to change the regulations within a year
Tilray’s Philippe Lucas says they’re looking forward to seeing what shape that takes.
There’s no guarantee, however, that new regulations will be created because the federal government could still launch an appeal of the ruling.
