Health Canada Conducts Follow-up Inspection of Pharmacy (Video)

Originally appearing here.

On October 18, 2011, Health Canada conducted a follow-up inspection of the pharmacy for our planned Phase 2 Canadian study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. The pharmacy inspection is required under Canadian regulations to ensure that the facility used to store and label the MDMA to be used in the study is adequately secure, and that the proper accountability procedures are in place. Once we obtain clearance from Health Canada we will be able to import the MDMA for the study into Canada from Switzerland.

Watch this brief video made by Canadian documentary filmmaker Arwen Hunter featuring a personal interview with pharmacist Colin Holyk discussing the challenges of negotiating the strict security requirements required by Health Canada and for a look inside the Vancouver pharmacy where the MDMA will be stored.
