IN THE HOUSE – presenting petitions – excise tax on medical cannabis

44th Parliament, 1st session

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition on behalf of 200 Canadians from across the country who are concerned about the government's continued maintenance of an excise tax on medical cannabis.

The petitioners call on the government to reverse its decision to apply an excise duty on cannabis sold for medical purposes, and to recognize that medical cannabis should be exempt from the federal goods and services tax, to exempt medical cannabis from any taxes, including the excise tax, to zero-rate the medical cannabis tax, in line with all other prescription medicine, and to exempt medical cannabis products from any additional taxes in order to allow for reasonable access to medical cannabis for all Canadians authorized to use it by health care practitioners
