Australian Government is moving to introduce medical marijuana…

Medical Marijuana:

The Australian government may soon be deciding on the legalisation of medical marijuana in Australia. Reports said the federal government will be given the power to oversee the production and distribution of medical cannabis if the new legislation is passed.

Medical cannabis is not yet legal in Australia but the bill to legalise the drug is gathering steam as Greens Senator Richard Di Natale, who also serves as chairman to the cross-party Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy and Law Reform, prepares for its introduction to Parliament in October, SMH reports.

According to SMH, support for the legalisation of medical marijuana gained traction after Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared in a radio show that he has no problem with the drug when used for medical purposes. Mr Abbott said he supports a drug needed for a valid medical purpose. If it is being administered safely, its legality should not be questioned.

The prime minister has not expressed his opinion on the matter publicly until the radio show. He wrote a letter addressed to Alan Jones, the host of the Talkback show. He agreed with the idea of regulating the medical drug and said there was no need to do more testing since other countries have found medical cannabis safe to use.
