Jerry Martin King of Compassion Fights for Medical Cannabis
Jerry Martin’s attack on the ACMPR’s mail order medical cannabis system:
Jerry Martin will be challenging the constitutionality of the ACMPR provisions that require medical cannabis patients to purchase their medicine by mail order. If Jerry Martin is successful the federal government will be required to permit storefront access for medical cannabis patients. Medical cannabis patients have different needs than adult use consumers. It is not sufficient to tell medical users to purchase their cannabis from adult use outlets. Of course, medical cannabis dispensaries have to obtain their cannabis from growers who are willing to provide the cannabis. These growers must be protected until the government solves the constitutional failings.
Why is the mail order system unconstitutional?
1. The mail order system fails medical cannabis patients with urgent need because it does not permit on-demand access to cannabis.
2. The mail order system fails medical cannabis patients of modest means who can only afford to purchase small amounts of cannabis on an as-needed basis, such as in one gram increments. All LPs require minimum purchases because the mail order system makes it financially impractical for LPs to ship small amounts at modest cost.
3. The mail order system fails those medical cannabis patients without computer access and/ or computer literacy.
4. The mail order system fails those medical cannabis patients without credit cards or bank accounts because they cannot make purchases in a prompt and economical manner.
5. The mail order system fails medical cannabis patients by only permitting inadequate and expensive cannabis extracts.
6. The mail order system fails homeless medical cannabis patients who cannot receive mail order deliveries.
7. The mail order system fails medical cannabis patients because of the difficult, costly, and time-consuming process of switching LPs.
8. The mail order system fails medical cannabis patients because they are denied the more practical and therapeutic in-person storefront model.
Jerry comes from humble beginnings in rural Saskatchewan and has dedicated much of his adult life to fighting for Canadians to have fair access to medical cannabis. Jerry has donated over $100,000 in his lifetime, and has become a prominent figure in the Cannabis community. Known as the “King of Compassion” Jerry wishes to argue for the constitutional right for medical cannabis users to access local dispensaries. Presently, medical users are only able to purchase from Licensed Producers using an online system. As indicated above, many find the process complicated, expensive and untrustworthy. Jerry has helped many patients access Cannabis when the legal system failed them. Please consider donating to his legal battle at the link below:
