Medical marijuana patients in Canada can legally use all forms of the drug, the Canadian Supreme Court has ruled.
Medical marijuana patients will now be able to consume marijuana, not only smoke it.
Cannabis oil is now permitted instead of only “dried” marijuana, meaning people can bake it into food products.
The case began in 2009 when a baker from the Cannabis Buyers Club of Canada was charged with trafficking and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Former head baker of the club Owen Smith was caught baking 200 pot cookies, CBC reports.
A British Columbia judge acquitted Mr Smith and gave Canada’s government a year to change laws around extracting marijuana. The case then wound up in the Supreme Court.
