WHO WE ARE
A recent study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers for Health Canada indicated that more than 1,000,000 Canadians currently rely upon medical cannabis for relief from pain, nausea and loss of appetite. Cannabis clubs formed across Canada in response to the incredible demand for a safe and reliable source of medical cannabis. These clubs obtain cannabis to members who provide a verifiable letter of diagnosis for a chronic or terminal illnesses from a physician.
The senate recognizes cannabis clubs as a primary source of awareness of education.
Cannabis As Living Medicine (C.A.L.M.) is a national, peer-run organization that provides almost 2,000 Canadians living with severe or chronic illnesses with safe and continuous access to medicinal cannabis in a safe empowering environment. C.A.L.M. is Eastern Canada’s first medical cannabis club, established in 1996, and serves members in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada. Currently, C.A.L.M. is a superior dispenser of medical cannabis that functions like a wellness centre. C.A.L.M. is open seven days a week in order to provide clients with consistent and reliable access to medical cannabis.
Cannabis is once again becoming a medically recognized form of medicine around the world. Canadians overwhelmingly support the legalization of medical cannabis (90%). C.A.L.M. welcomes all inquiries regarding cannabis as medicine.
Currently, the biggest hurdle to the medical use of cannabis is its politicization and legality. These hurdles burden Canada’s most vulnerable people with concerns of safety and expense, and expose them to the threat of criminal prosecution. At the same time these medical users have little to no regulation of the medicine they use. It is a long term goal of C.A.L.M. to help overcome the stigma and other obstacles that prevent the full benefits of cannabis from being realized.
