Why Canada needs a national pharmacare program
Canada is currently the only developed country with a universal health-care system that does not include universal coverage of prescription drugs. And paradoxically is the most expensive one. One in ten Canadians chose not to get the prescriptions drugs they were given by their doctors because of out-of-pocket costs. Dr Steve Morgan explains how a national pharmacare program would ensure that Canadians have access to a more complete and sustainable health care system. Dr. Steve Morgan is a Professor at the University of British Columbia’s School of Population and Public Health, an expert in pharmaceutical policy and an expert for Evidence Network. Interview by Mélanie Meloche-Holubowski, journalist intern at EvidenceNetwork.ca, and journalist with Radio-Canada.

Canada's War on Weed
With a reported value of over six billion dollars, it's no secret that marijuana in British Columbia is big business. However, due to the recent legalization of weed in Washington and Colorado, the draconian crime laws pushed forward by the Canadian Conservative government's omnibus crime bill, and recent changes to medical marijuana regulations, the entire industry is suddenly facing an identity crisis. VICE Canada went west to talk to the people directly affected by these recent events: from the legalization activists and the large and small scale growers, to the illegal traffickers and law enforcement, we talked to the people on the front lines of the battle for control over one of Canada's most undervalued resource.

Canadian Government Unveils Plans For Legal Marijuana
On Thursday, under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Canadian government unveiled its plans to legalize recreational marijuana. Bill Blair, parliamentary secretary to the minister of justice, claimed the legislation "seeks to legalize, strictly regulate and restrict access to cannabis, and it will make Canada safer." If the Cannabis Act passes through Parliament, Canada would become the second nation in the world, along with Uruguay, to regulate a legal marijuana market. The new policy had been expected for some time as Trudeau had endorsed the legalization of marijuana on the campaign trail. According to a tweet from his official account, Trudeau said, "It's too easy for our kids to get marijuana. We're going to change that." http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/14/americas/canada-justin-trudeau-marijuana/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

The real reason American health care is so expensive
Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

Vermont legalizes importing cheaper Canadian drugs
Story highlightsVermont's governor signed a bill that will create a plan to import Canadian prescription drugsThe plan will need to be approved by the US Department of Health and Human Services (CNN)Vermont is the first state in the country to pass legislation that could allow the importation of less-expensive prescription drugs from Canada.Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed the bill Wednesday morning. It was approved by the Legislature with bipartisan support."The price for many drugs, especially specialty drugs, has gone sky-high," said state Sen. Virginia Lyons, a Democrat who co-sponsored the bill. "We've found that drugs from Canada are very safe and the equivalent of FDA-approved, and we could keep our costs down by having our own wholesale importer and allow our people to buy at this reduced cost. It's about time that happened." The 5 most expensive drugs in the United StatesVermonters wouldn't get access to the reduced-cost drugs right away. The law directs the state Agency of Human Services to design a workable program. The drugs would also have to meet the US Food and Drug Administration's safety and effectiveness standards, and they would have to be the ones that "generate substantial savings for Vermont consumers." Once the drugs were imported, the law would not allow the state to sell them to other states. Read MoreThe plan is due by January 1, and if the Legislature approves it, lawmakers would have to come up with a financial plan to pay for the drugs. They'd have to get a wholesaler that would work with them and submit the plan for certification from the US Department of Health and Human Services by July 1, 2019. It's unclear whether the federal agency would approve the plan; it did not respond to a request for information. President Trump held a news conference Friday to discuss his plan to lower drug prices. Importing them was not part of the plan, but on the campaign trail, he talked about importing drugs as one price-reduction strategy. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, on the other hand, dismissed the general idea as a "gimmick" in a speech Monday. Although Canadians often pay less than Americans for their drugs -- even some of the same medications -- Azar suggested that importing them from Canada wouldn't work. Is your pharmacist under a 'gag rule' about drug prices?"They are a lovely neighbor to the north, but they're a small one," he said. "Canada simply doesn't have enough drugs to sell them to us for less money, and drug companies won't sell Canada or Europe more just to have them imported here." Azar added that the FDA has had concerns that there is no "effective way to ensure drugs coming from Canada really are coming from Canada, rather than being routed from a counterfeit factory in China." The pharmaceutical industry would probably agree. "Patient safety must be our top priority, and our public policies should reinforce -- not undermine -- that commitment," said Caitlin Carroll, a spokeswoman from PhRM

Why Canadian employers waste $5 billion a year on inefficient drug coverage
Employers in Canada spend an estimated 5 billion dollars a year on drug coverage for their employees. Yet, private plans are notoriously inefficient and they often cover higher priced drugs that are not necessarily better for consumers’ health, explains Alan Cassels. No wonder calls for a national pharmacare program are growing. Such a system would be more efficient, restrict the coverage of drugs that are not of good value and it would drive the price of drugs down, adds Alan Cassels. Alan Cassels is a Drug Policy Researcher affiliated with the Faculty of Human and Social Development at the University of Victoria.

It’s decades of work getting all of the university degrees and life experience so that NASA will even look at you when they’re selecting astronauts. In the last astronaut selection 18,300 people applied for 12 positions, so how do you even get your foot in the door? But if you’ve done enough things in your life that you’re competent enough that maybe they’ll look at you and then they phone you and say “We’d like you to be an astronaut,” now suddenly you’re starting a whole new phase of life. You come over this watershed and now there’s probably ten or 15 years of work ahead of you to get ready and be competent enough to be trusted to fly a spaceship, and then some day get into a rocket, and it takes you above the atmosphere and the engines shut off, and you’re there! And you’re doing all your work and flying the rocket and docking with the space station, but at the end of it what do you do with that experience?

MMAR Coalition Update Jan 25th Full HD
The Harper Government has passed legislation to amend Health Canada's Medical Marijuana Access Regulations (MMAR) and plans to enact the 'New Regulations' on March 31, 2013. The proposed New Regulations will prohibit self-cultivation of strain-specific plants and patients will have to become a registered client of a Licenced Producer and purchase Health Canada approved and authorized cannabis strains and qualities and the licence will be valid for two years instead of the current requirement to renew licences annually. The New Regulations will require have a direct and profound impact upon existing patients with MMAR Authorization to Possess (ATP) licences to use and cultivate cannabis for medicinal purposes. Health Canada's Medical Marihuana Access Program is now over a decade old and many patients with licences to cultivate have developed unique and highly successful strains of cannabis for the many varied applications being re-discovered daily by practicing 'cannabis phytotherapists'. Phytotherapy is the use of grasses as medicine and is a highly successful ancient practice and North America's First Nation peoples were also its first 'phytotherapists' using various grasses to maintain not only their mental and physical well-being but also their spiritual well-being through the use of sweetgrass in smudging ceremonies. Not unlike cannabis, sweetgrass was illegal until the early 1970's when the Indian Brotherhood, imprisoned First Nation members, lobbied the federal government to have this unjust law overturned and the plant restored to its rightful place. Jason Wilcox founder of Cannabis in Canada launched the 'MMAR PPL/DPL Coalition Against Repeal'; a coalition of cannabis activists including Marco Renda from Treating Yourself and the Urban Grower, Nadine Bews director of the Cannabis Wellness Centre of Alberta, Lisa Mamakind with ----et al (add whomever you wish to broadcast is on the team and have no objection to being noted) The purpose of the MMAR PPL/DPL Coalition Against Repeal is to: 1. Prevent some or all of the new regulations from becoming law. 2. Maintain the status quo until reasonable access is assured for those patients having the right to access is fair and reasonable. 3. File a class action lawsuit for damages if the MMAR Regulation Repeal becomes law. In order to prevent some or all of the New Regulations from becoming law the 'cannabis coalition' is currently raising funds to file a 'federal court injunction' under the legal guidance of lawyer, John Conroy, a well know expert on 'cannabis case-law' and legal counsel to Marc Emery whom has been incarcerated for the past 3 years in an American prison for selling seeds online to American customers also courtesy of the Harper government. In order to comply with Section 7 of the Canadian Constitution's Charter of Rights & Freedoms, the New Regulations must be a 'reasonable limit' on the right of access in all aspects and not be unreasonable. The members of the cannabis coalition MMAR PPL/DPL Against Repeal unanimously agree that there is enough evidence of immeasurable personal harm and financial hardship that will come from dis-allowing the personal cultivation of strain specific plants. At the present time the cannabis coalition is researching license holders to determine if there is a good Representation Action that can be taken to seek 'declaratory and injunctive relief' to prevent the implementation of some or all of the new proposed Regulations and to maintain some or all of the status quo to ensure that Constitutional Rights are respected. It is now over 50 years since Dr. Raphael Mechoulim isolated the delta-nine-tertahydrocarbinol molecule (CB1) and we have long since identified the human endocannabinoid system and its all of its functions however, we have yet to acquire data on the healing properties of cannabis phytotherapy. Universities throughout Canada and the world are constantly uploading reporting Youtube videos reporting the scientific discoveries of the cannabis plant and cannabis wellness centres and patients throughout Canada are claiming the miraculous healing qualities of 'phytocannabinoid therapy' on Facebook and Twitter. Health Canada is open to submissions for amendments to the New Regulations until February 28, 2013. The present time the PPL/DPL Coalition Against Repeal is gathering IMPACT STATEMENTS from not only persons having a MMAR Licence to Produce (ATP) but anyone who may not have ATP but are forced to purchase product through the blackmarket. Health Canada's deadline for submission is March 31, 2012 and time is of the essence and the cannabis coalition is making an urgent appeal for IMPACT STATEMENT from everyone affected including patients, caregivers, cultivators and family, friends and supporters.

The Canadian Orphan Drug Act Explained
Health Canada plans to introduce its Orphan Drug Act sometime this year. The act is expected to help define a rare disease and orphan drug in Canada (there is currently no official definition) but many believe the act falls short by not including the 7 year exclusivity that is common with other Orphan Drug Acts in other countries. In this exclusive interview with Rare Disease Report, Eric Gervais, executive vice-president at Medunik Canada explains what the Canadian Orphan Drugs Act will and will not include in the coming years.

Canadian government discussing marijuana law
This is the Canadian government talking about the laws in Canada, but it is ridiculess to hear them even bring up "kids using drugs"! It's simple to see " kids" have easy access to drugs now! It's much better to look at Portugal and the success they have had with educating.

Canada’s system of cannabis control is failing to prevent or reduce the harms associated with cannabis use. As the leading Canadian teaching hospital for addiction and mental illness, CAMH offers evidence-based conclusions about cannabis and suggests measures aimed at reducing harm. Legalization with strict regulation would allow for more control over important risk factors like age of initiation, product potency and formulation, and impaired driving.
