“O Canada”…..

….We’ll catch up with you in sensible compassion at some point. Maybe. We live in hope…..

“Canada’s largest pharmacy chain has announced plans to cover medical marijuana under its employee benefit plan, making Loblaw Companies Limited and Shoppers Drug Mart the largest private sector company to offer the perk.

Cannabis isn’t yet covered under typical drug spending as it doesn’t have a Drug Identification Number recognized by insurers, so it will be covered through a special authorization process that will have employees pay and submit their claim afterward.

Roughly 45,000 employees will be eligible for the benefit, including 22,000 Shoppers store staff, 3,000 corporate staff and 20,000 corporate and store management employees at George Weston/Loblaw.”
