Australia. Medical cannabis legalized



Following a long and high profile campaign by Australian medical cannabis campaigners, the Australian Government have lifted their ban on the use and production of medical cannabis.  Australian law-makers have changed the Australian ‘Narcotics Drugs Act’ of 1967 to allow cannabis to be grown, this means that Australia is not in breach of its legal international obligations to the United Nations.  The UN Drugs policy on cannabis is now openly ignored by many countries, with hundreds of millions of people in Europe, North America, Israel, South America and now Australia able to access cannabis for medical reasons. The decision by Australia will allow cannabis use to be rolled out to medical users and has been welcomed by Australia’s medical cannabis campaigners who raised over 247,000 signatures to force the Government to change policy.
