PROTESTERS DECRY PACE OF MEDICINAL-POT PLAN
Scores of protesters, including some in wheelchairs, marched peacefully

The demonstrators in downtown Toronto charged that there were lengthy delays
in the government providing marijuana to eligible patients with certain
diseases or conditions.

grown by the government has been distributed. Under the program, patients
certified as eligible also may grow their own.
