Medical marijuana use in all forms has now been approved and legalized by the government of British Columbia. This includes cannabis oil, edibles, and dry marijuana.

In 2009 former head baker of the Canada Buyers Club Owen Smith was caught baking 200 weed cookies. After dropping the case, a judge gave the Canadian government a year to change the laws.

Medical marijuana is used for treatment of serizures, HIV, Crohn's disease and more. Therefore, preventing the use of dried marijuana for these purposes would be "contrary to the principles of fundamental justice because they are arbitrary; the effects of the prohibition contradict the objective of protecting health and safety," according to the ruling.

The legal marijuana industry in Colorado has made over $50 million in its first year through selling all forms of the plant.
