Mettrum Medical Marijuana

Partington v. Mettrum Inc., et al

Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 461301

A Notice of Action and Statement of Claim were filed on March 13, 2017.

Wagners is collaborating with Roy O’Connor in Toronto.

The certification hearing in Ontario is scheduled to be heard within 2 weeks after the date of November 24, 2018.

Mettrum Ltd. is a supplier of medical cannabis (marijuana) with headquarters based in Ontario. Mettrum supplies thousands of Canadians with dried and oil-based medical marijuana and cannabis products. Mettrum Ltd. was a subsidiary of Mettrum Health Corp., with both companies now owned by Canopy Growth Corporation.

In October of 2016, a Health Canada inspection at Mettrum facilities detected that cannabis plants were treated with a product containing pyrethrins, an undeclared pesticide not authorized for use on cannabis plants.

As a result, on or about November 1, 2016, Mettrum initiated a voluntary Type III recall for fifteen different types of its medical cannabis products, including one hundred and fifteen lots of dried marijuana and cannabis oil, sold between September 30, 2014 and October 21, 2016.

Health Canada performed further testing of Mettrum medical cannabis products, and discovered they contained myclobutanil, a fungicidal pesticide not authorized for use on cannabis or other products that might be consumed by smoking,

On or about December 1, 2016, Mettrum notified its customers of an expanded recall of three further dried medical cannabis product lots. Mettrum provided no reason for the expanded recall and made no mention of myclobutanil.

On or about January 9, 2017, Mettrum notified its customers of an expanded recall of five further different types of its dried cannabis and cannabis oil products. Mettrum provided no reason for the expanded recall and made no mention of myclobutanil.

On or about January 28, 2017, Mettrum notified its customers of yet another recall of a further twelve different types of its dried cannabis and cannabis oil products. Again, Mettrum provided no reason for the expanded recall and made no mention of myclobutanil.

Approximately one hundred and eighty-five lots of products produced between January 1, 2016 and November 17, 2016 have ultimately been recalled due to the presence of myclobutanil.

The lots that are the subject of the recalls may be found as a schedule at the end of the Notice of Action and Statement of Claim which was filed on March 13, 2017.

Wagners is registering individuals who wish to participate in the proposed class action against Mettrum. If you or a loved one has purchased or consumed cannabis products produced and sold by Mettrum, you are welcome to visit the registration tab to obtain a copy of the registration form.

5 years ago Ray was recommended to me. I contacted him and he took my medical malpractice case on. Although I was in Cape Breton, Ray met with me on several occasions. He was very professional and the staff took care of me in an excellent way throughout the entire process.When you get hurt in a catastrophic way like I did, taking on legal action is very scary. The process of medical malpractice litigation can be very draining and disturbing to a person. The legal process was very unknown to me. I believe there should be more people like Ray, Kate and Krizia. They went above and beyond. Ray has a great sense of responsibility to his clients.I only saw parts of the legal process but I know they make it a lot easier for people. I am overwhelmed by the kindness and patience of Ray and his entire team.read more

After my accident I was getting nothing but a run around from my insurance company, that is if I could actually get them to answer an email or return a phone call.  I was getting so frustrated that I would just break down and cry.  My father in-law told me it was time for a lawyer. I don't know why I didn't think of it.  Oh wait I do, my insurance company told me that they would take care of me.  Lie number one, they also told me they wanted to take care of everything as quickly as possible so that my life wouldn't be that disrupted. Lie number 2. I did my homework to find someone who would best represent me.  I contacted Wagner law threw their live chat, thank god for live chat because I was in bed in a lot of pain and found it hard to sit and even talk on a phone. they paired me with a member of their firm right away.  I think my lawyer Lisa Wagner was sent from god himself.  I had a lot of questions and she answered every one of them for me and also advised me on a lot of things I didn't know of.  Its because of her i got into see all the right medical professionals and finally started on the road to recovery.  It was a long hard battle but Lisa helped me threw it all.  She was amazing, caring and I truly felt her compassion for me and what I was going threw.  We only met face to face a few times, due to living in different province's, every time we did it was like sitting with an old friend. I would and do recommend Wagner Law to everyone I hear may need a Lawyer and tell all my friends and family if they ever need a lawyer to contact Wagner's. The most stars I'm able to give them is 5 but i think they deserve a 10. Thank you all for everything you have done to help me and my family.  We truly couldn't have got threw this without you.read more
