Canadian Health Insurance Co. Says Yes to Covering Cannabis Costs

...under Canada’s medical marijuana program, there’s now a health insurance company that reimburses the cost of cannabis for patients as part of their insurance coverage.

You heard that right — free cannabis is now possible for Canadians covered by Sun Life insurance. It’s a sign of quickly-changing perceptions of cannabis in North America, and other insurance companies are expected to follow suit.

The Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) passed in June of 2013, creating a for-profit commercial structure for medical cannabis producers and retailers.

These regulations also ensure that any sick Canadian in need of treatment can access cannabis that’s been grown in a safe and sterile environment.
