HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND TO CALLS TO ALLOW THE MEDICAL USE OF CANABIS?
There is reasonable evidence that THC, the active ingredient in cannabis, is moderately effective in treating nausea and vomiting and in stimulating appetite adversely affected by disease or medical treatment. There is also some evidence that cannabinoids are effective in treating acute and chronic pain and in relieving some of the troubling symptoms of multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. What are the prospects of other medicinal cannabinoids or medical cannabis preparations being used for medical purposes in Australia? Should we follow the example set by 21 states in the USA and allow patients to smoke cannabis to relieve these symptoms? If so, under what conditions should we allow patients to smoke cannabis? How should we address the issue of cannabis supply? How do these policies relate to the debate about the legalisation of recreational cannabis use by adults? Professor Wayne Hall is from the Centre for Youth Substance Abuse Research at the University of Queensland. He was keynote speaker at the ACHSM Breakfast Forum in Brisbane on December 7 2016. Listen to an interview on this issue.
