Under the new rules regarding medical cannabis in Australia, approved licensed cannabis companies can legally import, store and sell to patients until domestic production can meet the needs of the nation. The announcement was greeted with overwhelming support by the Australian medical companies.
By establishing a legal channel for the distribution of cannabis, the government shows her compassion to patients and relieves the family and friends and potentially a problem for society. People who suffer from a severe disease should not be treated as criminals.
The most important step is to ensure that health professionals are prepared and ready to prescribe these products to their patients. This is a major obstacle, overtaking it will manage to change the moral conditioning regarding the subject, this will also be thanks to improved training methods and a close collaboration with leading research institutes in Australia, also for clinical trials.
For a year, the debate in favor of the legalization of medicinal cannabis has been taking place on all levels. It is time to make sure that the patients eventually gain access to medical, legal, safe, sustainable and locally produced products.
This is also good news for the job market and a great asset in economic terms for Australia, as a future major exporter, as soon as production capacity is available.
