WIRE: Australia’s medical marijuana changes take effect

Canberra, Australia — New regulations permitting the licensed cultivation and production of cannabis for medicinal purposes are now in effect.

The intention of the new rules is to establish and regulate a domestic supply of cannabis to be used in state-sponsored clinical, investigational trials.

In March, members of Parliament overwhelmingly approved amendments to the Narcotics Drugs Act of 1967 to permit qualified patients participating in clinical trials to have increased access to cannabis.
