The first B.C. company with a new federal licence to grow medical marijuana says the budding industry is full of uncertainties.
Dan Laflamme, part-owner of Canna Farms, says the market for medical marijuana is still unclear.
“Right now, there’s only 40,000 patients, and how many of them are actually going to use the system?” Laflamme said.
“We’ve received many phone calls from people that are happy with the system and many that are not. We know the system’s not for everyone, and all we can do is do our best to provide quality product at a reasonable cost.”
There is speculation that medical marijuana users could continue to grow in homes, even though that will be illegal come April 1. Under the new federal regulations only licensed commercial operations will be legally allowed to grow marijuana for medical users.
Laflamme says his dried marijuana will sell for between $5 and $7.50 per gram and he’s eventually hoping to produce 700 kilograms per year.
