Increased Pharmaceutical Freedom in Canada

Two changes in regulations related to medications in Canada of note:

Canada has approved a cannibabis-based painkiller for people with multiple sclerosis. This makes Canada the first country in the world to approve a medication similar to marijuana.

While we are having problems in the United States of pharmacists refusing to dispense contraceptives, Canada is moving in the opposite direction, making it easier to receive the "morning after" pill by making them available without a prescription.
