2021 MHIQ Lecture Series - Australia's policy on the medical uses of cannabis: origins and implications

Emeritus Professor Wayne Hall's presentation to the Medicine Grand Rounds at GCUH discusses Australia's policy on the medical uses of cannabis: origins and implications. In 2016, Australia legislated to allow the use of unapproved cannabis products and cannabinoids for medical purposes under special access schemes. Em. Prof Hall describes how this policy has come about and discusses some of the issues that Australian Governments have had to wrestle with as a result.
