July 15, 1999, Toronto, Ontario: Canada's federal health agency, Health Canada, has requested a Toronto research group to design the country's first ever clinical trial on the use of marijuana in AIDS treatment.
"This is further evidence that the Canadian government is serious about addressing the medical marijuana issue," NORML Director Keith Stroup said.   In June, Health Canada released guidelines for upcoming medical marijuana trials, and announced plans to grow marijuana for medical research.   Health Canada asked the Community Research Initiative of Toronto (CRIT) to design the AIDS protocol, which will reportedly begin this year. Currently, one U.S. study examining the effects of marijuana on patients with AIDS is taking place in San Francisco.   For more information, please contact Allen St. Pierre or Paul Armentano of The NORML Foundation   (202) 483-8751.
