Canada's high court will weigh the constitutional rights of medical marijuana users for the first time on Friday.
At stake is whether approved legal cannabis users can be restricted to just using dried marijuana – the only authorized product under the new system of regulated producers – and denied access to oil extracts and other options, such as pot brownies and cookies.
