Medical and Scientific: MLC joins cannabis laws calls

25 Jan 2021 - Medical and Scientific

Labor says the Tasmanian government is ignoring its own Upper House when it comes to medicinal cannabis legislation and it is causing unnecessary suffering. Huon MP Bastian Seidel said the Legislative Council passed a motion in November last year that the government rethink its legalisation having regard to laws in other Australian jurisdictions. The motion went on to say that reconsideration should be made with a view to allow prescribing under proper process to those patients it would benefit and prevent patients and carers from having to act unlawfully for treatment.
