Shoppers Drug Mart is looking to hire a medical marijuana brand manager who would lead its strategy and marketing activities to doctors and health-care providers in the cannabis space.

However, it isn’t currently legal to distribute marijuana through pharmacies. Under current federal regulations, the only regulated distribution method is by mail order through licensed producers.

If and when the rules are changed, Shoppers said the winning candidate would also ensure that its medical pot marketing material is compliant with Health Canada regulations.
