Medical Cannabis: Starting the Conversation

Ken Weisbrod
Vice President, Business Development/Cannabis Strategy, Shoppers Drug Mart

Ken has worked as a practicing pharmacist in both the US and Canada. He has spent the past 30 years working in the healthcare and pharmacy industries and has consulted with the government on the regulations for narcotic and controlled drugs.

Ken began working for Shoppers Drug Mart in 2003 and has led the Shoppers Cannabis Strategy since 2013. His experience and commitment have been key to Shoppers’ emergence into the medical cannabis space and the successful launch of Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™, the first and only Health Canada approved distributor of cannabis from a pharmacy retailer.

Most recently, Ken has worked on a technology to track and verify the source of cannabis used by medical patients. Ultimately, the project will allow physicians and researchers to get accurate information on how medical cannabis can benefit patients.

In his presentation, Ken will introduce the key benefits to patients provided by Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™:
 Convenience & selection: Patients can choose from multiple brands using only one
medical document
 Clinical guidance: Trained advisors and pharmacists on the Shoppers cannabis care
team provide support to patients by helping them select appropriate products
 Valued programs: Advisors provide support for Veterans Affairs, private insurance
coverage, and our compassionate pricing program

Join him as we start the conversation!
