Tax on medical marijuana ‘unfortunate,’ says P.E.I. grower

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Some members of the cannabis industry on P.E.I. are concerned with the federal government’s plan to charge an excise tax on medical marijuana.
  • It includes an exemption for cannabis that contains lower than0.3 per cent THC, the psychoactive compound in the drug.
  • Tommy Biggar, a co-owner at Island ReLeaf Glass in Summerside, and a medical marijuana user himself, says the plan is disappointing.
  • He uses strains of marijuana low in THC so he won’t face the excise tax, but he saidmost medical cannabis contains more than 0.3 per cent THC.
  • I think it’s unfortunate because if you buy any other prescription drug on Prince Edward Island … you’re not paying HST on it and you’re not paying an excise tax on it either, he said.
