420 Girl – Lynne Belle Isle


The problem with Health Canada, says Lynne Belle-Isle of the Canadian Aids Society, who also sits on Health Canada’s Stakeholders’ Advisory Committee on Medical Marihuana, is that they don’t seem to know a lot about cannabis, and they’re not in touch with the community of patients. “We want the compassion clubs to be at the table, and there’s a huge resistance on the part of Health Canada to that. Personally, I would prefer a person walking into a compassion club and getting their cannabis than getting it from Joe with a pager on the corner of the street.”, she says.
