A POSITIVE STEP FORWARD FOR MEDICINAL CANNABIS REGULATION IN AUSTRALIA

A report into the Narcotic Drugs Act (ND Act) has recommended several changes to medical cannabis regulation in Australia.

The report, compiled by Australian National University Professor John McMillan and commissioned by Health Minister Greg Hunt, put forth 26 recommendations aimed at improving the regulatory framework for cultivating, producing and manufacturing medicinal cannabis.

One of the key recommendations is to simplify the current licensing regime of multiple separate cannabis production licences, to a single licence scheme, which would reduce the regulatory burden on both the administration and businesses within in the industry.

The report also questioned if cannabidiol (CBD) should be classed as a drug. According to the World Health Organization, in humans, CBD –  the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, “exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential”.
