Medical cannabis in WA: Where are we at?

Particle goes behind the scenes to take a look at the legislation, the status of domestic clinical trials and the potential benefits of the cannabis plant in health treatments.

Medical cannabis in WA: Where are we at?

In November 2016, the status of cannabis on a federal level went from being a ‘prohibited substance’, to a ‘controlled substance’. This has been a game changer in the medical cannabis movement for Australia.

We sit down with Elaine Darby – Managing Director of AusCann – an Australasian medical cannabis producer – to find out about the current status of medical cannabis supply and production on a state level. Professor Marco Falasca of Curtin University discusses his research in cancer treatments and outlines how our domestic clinical trials are taking us forwards.
