Re: Why is marijuana legal in Vancouver and not Saskatoon (Feb. 4). 
CanniMed has 290 prescribing physicians in Saskatchewan with 136 
physicians in Saskatoon alone, who have authorized patients to access 
medical marijuana through the legal Health Canada sanctioned Marijuana 
for Medical Purposes Regulations system.

More are becoming familiar with the value of cannabis as a medicine
every day. General practitioners, family medicine specialists,
oncologists, rheumatologists and hundreds of other doctors should be
seen as the gateway to this valuable medicine. None of them prescribe
medical advice through a Skype format.

There is enough confusion within the medical marijuana program in
Canada without columnists like Les MacPherson failing to do their research.
