Hard working Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has welcomed the Federal Government’s moves to deliver faster medical cannabis supplies to Australian patients.
The Federal Government has today authorised controlled importations of medical cannabis, until domestic production meets local needs.
“The Coalition has listened to the concerns of patients that are finding it difficult to access medical cannabis on a prescription,” Ms Landry said.
“This is a significant issue for Central Queensland. I have received letters and phone calls from dozens of constituents, seeking clarification over access to medical cannabis.
“I very much welcome this development. By implementing this policy, the Federal Government is making it easier for patients to access medicinal cannabis products more rapidly.
“But in doing so, we will maintain strict safe safeguards to ensure patient and community safety.”
