    The Health Minister claims the medicinal cannabis market isn't up to scratch

    The Health Minister claims the medicinal cannabis market isn't up to scratch


    Andrew Little spoke to the Drug Foundation's symposium this morning.

    The Government's medicinal cannabis scheme enables the commercial cultivation for people with terminal illness or chronic pain.

    Little says they aren't seeing an effective medicinal cannabis products regime yet.

    He says if there was, people wouldn't be hitting barriers to get access to products.
