Australian cannabis suppliers will be able to export their products come February, but local patients are still struggling. Australia’s minister for health Greg Hunt opened 2018 with a bang last week, announcing the federal government would be allowing the export of medicinal cannabis products. The declaration means big things for Australia’s still-developing medicinal cannabis industry, however it attracted outrage from members of the Australian public who are trying (and failing) to access the medicine for themselves. Hunt said the move would pave the way for Australia to potentially become the world’s number one medicinal cannabis supplier, and said there would be “more than enough” product available for both Australian and international users. “One of the conditions of any licence for export is that medicinal cannabis be made available to Australian patients first,” he said. “Patients come first.” 2018 Starts Great For Australia’s Cannabis Businesses, Less So For Patients
