Need some medical marijuana? There’s an app for that. An Alberta-based pot producer has launched a mobile app to make it easier for patients with a prescription to purchase federally-regulated medicinal weed. Cam Battley, of Aurora Cannabis, said the idea was to give customers the same service as giant online retailers such as Amazon.

1) “As far as we know, it is the first legal app for Android and Apple for federally-approved legal medical cannabis.”  But is there anything new here?  Isn’t this just another app to be able to buy just another product?

2) “The idea was to give customers the same service as giant online retailers such as Amazon.”  Why can’t, or won’t, Amazon.ca just come into this space and compete?
