Australia’s Medical Cannabis 48-Hour Application Scheme Has Been Rolled Out In NSW, Victoria, And Queensland

Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration quietly rolled out a streamlined application process for medical cannabis on Monday — but only Queensland, Victoria, and New South Wales are involved for now.

In April, politicians from around the country met and agreed to the idea of a national scheme that would see patients’ waiting time for medical cannabis application results reduced from months to days, but there was no deadline given on the program’s rollout.

Federal health minister Greg Hunt called the new process a “one-stop shop for accessing medicinal cannabis.”
