Medicinal cannabis for Queensland

Medicinal cannabis for Queensland BUY CANNABIS IN QUEENSLAND SICK Queenslanders will find it easier to access medicinal cannabis from next month, thanks to state and federal changes.

Health Minister Cameron Dick on Tuesday introduced a Bill to regulate the use of medicinal cannabis in Queensland, creating two “pathways” for patients.

He said changes were being made to state regulations to enable patients to access the treatment once the Therapeutic Goods Administration finalised its rescheduling of some medicinal cannabis products. It is due to reschedule medicinal cannabis products from a prohibited poison to a schedule 8 medicine. BUY WEED ONLINE AUSTRALIA

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the new laws Tuesday morning.

“Today marks another milestone for those who have campaigned tirelessly for changes that will allow access to medicinal cannabis.”

“These activities remain offences under the Drugs Misuse Act 1986,” she said.

“But this landmark decision will pave the way for other Queenslanders wishing to apply to use medicinal cannabis. BUY CANNABIS IN QUEENSLAND

“Because we know there are patients in the community right now who may benefit from some relief that can be delivered through medicinal cannabis.”

Mr Dick said there was “overwhelming public support from Queenslanders” for the use of medicinal cannabis.

He said 1052 people completed a survey on the use of the drug for therapeutic purposes during consultation on the new laws with more than 96 per cent of respondents in favour of treatment with medicinal cannabis. BUY CANNABIS IN QUEENSLAND

“Under amendments made to the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation late last year, the Chief Executive already has limited power to approve treatment with certain medicinal cannabis products,” Mr Dick said.

“The new legislation will provide that framework. BUY CANNABIS IN QUEENSLAND

“It will allow the use of medicinal cannabis products in Queensland provided they are based on medical evidence and supported by clinical treatment plans.”
