AMHERST, Nova Scotia, (UPI) -- A Nova Scotia couple filed a lawsuit against the maritime province, saying it should pay their costs for growing medical marijuana because they're too poor.

The husband and wife have disabilities, are on income assistance and both have licenses from Health Canada to grow marijuana for their own use and are allowed to keep a total of 25 plants, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

"We're out of medication quite often," the husband, Sam, told the CBC. "We can't keep up on the amount that we need to grow."

Sam said he didn't want his last name revealed out of fears his marijuana operation would be targeted by thieves.

The man and his wife, Tanya, both in their 40s, say they want the Nova Scotia Supreme Court to force the province to cover a one-time setup fee of $2,500 and provide $100 every three months for chemicals and supplies.

Sam said he was told by a lawyer for the Department of Community Services the department has already spent $200,000 fighting their request.

"That just goes to show you that there's something wrong with the system when they're willing to spend that amount of money to stop two disabled people from getting their medication," he said. "It's pathetic and sickening."

Health Canada would rather spend 10s of thousands on pills from Big Pharma, than finance a modest garden for these people. Kickbacks! Just like our Medicare with it's un-holy relationship with insurance companies :cough:
They're not even asking for help with the power bill :smokin2:

/\ In all fairness I must say that so far Medicare is taking good care of me with the exception of not supplying me with the best medicine..... Cannabis.

Um yes, now that I've thought about it, I'd like $2500 too. Also, $100 quarterly wont make or break me, but I'll take that as well.
