Shoppers Drug Mart confirmed it has increased the range of its medical cannabis sales online tool for patients in Canada to include seven additional provinces in Canada.

The pharmacy, a Loblaw Companies (TSX:L,OTC Pink:LBLCF) division, made its announcement on Tuesday (December 3) with separate statements for each province. The drug store added there still is work to be done with educating patients using medical cannabis in Canada. In particular, it cited misconceptions that it sees in the market today.


“Canadians continue to use cannabis for medical purposes but many have been left behind by traditional models,” said Jeff Leger, president of Shoppers Drug Mart.
