Please, we ask you for your patience, as we transition to a full-fledged dispensary, from an in home run society to a storefront sign up office and community education platform to an alternative natural choice treatment dispensary. With a growing number of members and increased resource consumption, acquisition of supply has been a difficult requirement to fulfil along with deliveries member sign up, and community education. As well, health issues continue to plaque us at times and if our voices and choice of ds seem insensitive,it is just a reflection of the pain and symptom discomfort experienced at the time.
Please call 1 day ahead for appointments and deliveries to be arranged. Presently, either Aaron (president), Bob Cyre (founding Director) or Janice Cyre (founding director) will be fielding and returning calls or messages on a daily basis.
M.A.C.R.O.S. is doing everything we can to fight for the patient and make it accessable to all that choose Cannabis as their medicine. It is unfair that insurance companys will not pay for this medicine. If there is anyone that has the ability to open a medical insurance for Cannabis we would all be able to afford our choose in medicine. M.A.C.R.O.S. is currently in the process of becomeing acredited along with other BC, Ontario and Quebec companion societies. We belive this is a way we can still help our membership get the highest quaility Medicine at the most affordable rate. We are not a grower so we will need to work with only liecenced growers. In turn going through this
process takes time and a lot of steps have been made in order for M.A.C.R.O.S. to be around April 1, 2014.
With the support of the membership we at M.A.C.R.O.S. belive that we will find our place in the new system what ever
it shall be, so the patients have a safe and secure place to discuss their choice in medicine.
