LONDON, Ont. -- Dozens of medical marijuana users have been left in limbo after a B.C.-based producer recalled a batch of pot.

Greenleaf Medicinals issued a voluntary recall of its Purple Kush strain April 18 following a Health Canada inspection that found problems with the company's control, production and oversight procedures.

Though Greenleaf has promised to help its client find new suppliers, that hasn't happened yet, leaving the 63 users affected by the recall with the possibility of being without prescription pot for weeks.

One local Greenleaf client says Health Canada has hung him out to dry.

The man, who only wanted to be identified as Jay, registered with Greenleaf by sending the original copy of his authorization to possess -- the document required to be supplied with medicinal marijuana -- as required by Health Canada.
