Marapharm Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Marapharm Ventures Inc., began assembling people and property in 2014 for an application and future build out on property located in Kelowna British Columbia, Canada. The property is 11 acres in size and the Provincial government has confirmed that the zoning is a legal and proper to use for medical marijuana production. The City of Kelowna however has yet to establish bylaws for the new industry to reflect the governments order and Marapharm in turn is looking at other jurisdictions for a change in venue application to Health Canada should it be deemed nessasary to expedite the process.
In September 2015 Marapharm's application to Health Canada for an MMPR license progressed to the Security Clearance Process stage. In February 2016 this stage was approved. According to Health Canada's web site there are several stages to the application process. The security clearance stage being a significant milestone in that process. Marapharm intends to commence construction as soon as possible once the license application has been approved in it's entirety.
The Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) came into force in June 2013. The regulations create conditions for a commercial industry that is responsible for the production and distribution of marijuana for medical purposes. They also make sure that Canadians with a medical need can access quality controlled marijuana grown under secure and sanitary conditions.
