The medicinal cannabis system kickstarted by Dan's Law is sadly a mess. Rather than making things easier, the legislative changes of 2016 which were supposed to make cannabis and cannabis products available to sick Australians have barely improved matters at all. Patients still struggle to obtain such medicines legally while a huge black market has developed servicing hundreds of thousands of people.

February 2021 marks five years since Medicinal Cannabis was legalised in Australia and nearly one year since the release of the Senate Inquiry recommendations into the barriers to patient access.

That is one whole year of the Government ignoring the pleas for help from thousands of patients who are still having difficulty accessing cannabis medicines.

Nothing will change if MPs from around the country don't hear from their constituents ...

Today, can you send an email in your own words to your federal MP, and ask them to please advocate for life-changing reforms we need with the Medicinal Cannabis system?

 

Some tips:

- Keep it short, but personal. If this issue affects you or someone you love, tell that story.

- Perhaps ask why the Morrison Government ignoring the recommendations of the 2021 Senate Inquiry into the current barriers to patient access to medicinal cannabis in Australia? If enacted, the reforms could enable changes to the cost of cannabis medicines for people veterans with PTSD and the families of children with intractable epilepsy -  just to name a couple. 

- Stay polite and respectful at all times.

Thank you.
