Enertopia Provides Media Update on Green Canvas Joint Venture
November 18, 2014
Vancouver, BC - Enertopia Corporation (ENRT) on the OTCBB and (TOP) on the CSE (the "Company" or "Enertopia") is very pleased to announce that Enertopia and The Green Canvas Ltd have jointly posted a four part video series on their respective websites. Green Canvas is currently in the process of applying to become a Licensed Producer pursuant to Canada's new Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulation ("MMPR").
The 4 videos are about 5 min each and showcase why the use of Medical Cannabis is so important to so many people today. “No matter what city or town I have visited over the past year since entering the Medical Marijuana sector across Canada, the one recurring theme is the gratefulness from patients that Medical Cannabis has allowed many patients to regain some or most of their lives back from prescribed pain killers”, stated President CEO Robert McAllister
In a recent Globe and Mail article from October 3, 2014 it was reported that over 2,500 Canadian’s die each year from prescribed pain killers. Somewhere in Canada this year, a car accident claimed the life of someone who was taking eight different kinds of potent painkillers. We don’t know the person’s name, age, gender or even where the crash took place – just that he or she is one of the nearly 2,500 such death reports sent to Health Canada’s “adverse drug reaction” database.
Some who died took their own lives, while others had used the pills to get high. But many were people who had received a prescription from their doctor: a 49-year-old man with heart problems, a 51-year-old woman who overdosed, perhaps forgetting that her dosage had gone up, a 69-year-old man simply in “pain.” The entries are voluntary and imprecise (some deaths appear more than once), but the database is the closest the federal government comes to tracking the body count in the nation’s pitched battle with painkillers.
“For over ten years myself and The Green Canvas team have been working hard at trying to stop this madness with our ability to provide Medical Cannabis for patients in dire need of mental and physical pain relief”, stated Tim Selinski founder and President of The Green Canvas.
Robert McAllister, Enertopia Corporation., President & CEO said, “We are all witnessing today the emergence of the next great health and wellness industry of our times where the patient finally comes first.”
