  • Any specialist can prescribe medicinal cannabis for any patient they believe will benefit from treatment, just as they would for any other controlled or restricted medicine.
  • Visitors to Queensland who have a valid prescription for medicinal cannabis from another jurisdiction will no longer require a specific Queensland approval.
  • The bill also removes the requirement for pharmacists to hold an approval to dispense medicinal cannabis and researchers to hold an approval to conduct a clinical trial.
  • It will remain illegal for the Queensland public to grow cannabis for medicinal purposes
