P.E.I. Medical Marijuana to Be Ready by Christmas

The first crop from Prince Edward Island's medicinal marijuana factory is on the way.

Edwin Jewell has been planning Canada's Island Garden marijuana for the last few years, submitting the licence application to Health Canada in September 2013. The final step in the licensing process is to submit a test crop for inspection by Health Canada. Jewell expects that process will be completed by Christmas.

Jewell said medical marijuana is the company's focus right now, but that could change if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government legalizes marijuana.

"I would say possibly yes," said Jewell.
