Health Canada going after medical pot users for almost $170,000 in bad debts

From the Canadian Press:
Like any dope dealer, Health Canada has its share of marijuana customers who just don't pay their bills.

But unlike street pushers, the department avoids tire irons and switchblades to recover its bad debts in favour of stern letters and collection agencies.

As of last month, 127 people authorized to buy government-certified marijuana for various medical problems were officially in arrears, with bills unpaid for more than 90 days. ...more

Does anyone know the method that the pot is distributed to these patients? It seems to me that it would be a lot easier for the patients if it was dispensed through designated pharmacies.
