Access to medicinal cannabis in Bundaberg could be sped up after Parliament passed laws yesterday to give patients quick access to it.
The new laws mean the prescription process for medicinal cannabis has been accelerated, significantly streamlining the process and giving patients the treatment they need.
Several companies are looking at producing medicinal cannabis crops in Queensland, reducing costs and improving access for patients.
However, it will still remain illegal for people in Queensland to grow cannabis.
Cannabis has been linked to assist with symptoms of nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy or treatment for HIV/AIDS, different types of pain, those with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and patients in palliative care.
