Quebec registry for users of medical cannabis

The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and the Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids (CCIC) have launched a registry for users of medical cannabis in Quebec that will allow physicians to better manage its use and monitor patient safety. This innovative project represents the world’s first research database on the use of cannabis for medical purposes and places the province at the forefront of research in the field of medical cannabis. The registry was launched in response to a call by the Collège des médecins du Québec (CMQ) for guidelines on the use of medical cannabis in accordance with new government regulations. As of April 1, 2014, cannabis can only be prescribed “within a research framework,” as it is not a medically recognized treatment.

Martha de Francisco named 'Woman of Distinction' Arts and Culture section by YWCA

About Martha de Francisco

Martha de Francisco is an artist, but an artist whose work is to make the work of other artists sound great. Lend us an ear for a moment…

This classically trained pianist was born in Mexico to a Colombian family. Educated in Germany she has dedicated her professional life to becoming one of the world’s top recording engineer-producers for classical music. Quite an accomplishment, considering that music recording is an almost entirely male-dominated industry – only 5 % are women.
