Letter to Ministers Bennett and Duclos re: Threshold quantities in exemption requests

Today, the HIV Legal Network and 21 partner organizations sent a letter to Carolyn Bennett, federal Minister of Mental Health and Addictions and Associate Minister of Health, and Jean-Yves Duclos, federal Minister of Health, asking them to refrain from establishing and requiring threshold quantities of drugs in provincial and municipal requests for exemption from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. We urged them to prioritize and centre the expertise of people who use drugs in all discussions related to provincial and municipal exemption requests, particularly as this relates to threshold quantities, should they be adopted.
