Submission on the use of cannabis for medical purposes - February 2013

NSWCCL has made a submission to the NSW Legislative Council General Purpose Standing Committee no. 4's inquiry into the use of cannabis for medical purposes.

"The NSW Council for Civil Liberties considers that drug use should be addressed as a health issue, not a legal issue.

The use of cannabis for medical purposes should be decriminalised to allow its use if medically qualified people consider that it has health benefits.

The Committee should recommend that a trial of medical cannabis be commenced as soon as practicable."
