An advocacy group says it’s disappointed the New South Wales government’s knocked back an opportunity to help terminally ill people with medicinal cannabis.
Last November the government established a parliamentary inquiry into the use of cannabis for medical purposes.
The bipartisan committee recommended AIDS and terminally ill patients be allowed to possess and use up to 15 grams of dry cannabis.
But the NSW government has knocked back the proposal.
Cancer Voices Australia says the decision takes an avenue of pain relief away from the terminally ill.
