Shoppers Drug Mart has been granted a license to sell medical cannabis through the mail.

According to Health Canada’s list of authorized cultivators, processors and sellers, Shoppers can sell cannabis in dried, fresh and oil form. They will also be able to sell plants and seeds.

Back in September, the Canadian retail pharmacy chain received approval to be a licensed medical marijuana producer, which opened the door for Shoppers to dispense medical cannabis to patients.
