There needs to be a couple of studies on the levels of active THC in the blood and how much is too much to drive. Obviously to do that they need tests to see what the active level is. And tests that can get results quick enough to use for enforcement.

Also it would be nice of big pharma was allowed to rip weed apart into the dozens of chemicals in it and do trials on all the parts to see what works for which things that ails you. Who knows, maybe you don't need to be high for you to get relief.

Hopefully it works out for you. It is a blessing in so many ways for those in need.

After 40 years of Tinnitus from Vietnam I have relief today.

Also hope they do not tax MMJ to death like my state (Washington) does. Same tax (37%) for both MMJ and recreational marijuana with state sales tax at 9.9% on top. It was a three tier at 25% each and sales tax as fourth tax.

The best I can do is get annual MMJ authorization ($60 - $200 a year), sign a State Register annually and then I do not have to pay state sales tax.

Whoopee ding ding...

Here's hoping, but missing out on the full bundle maybe a bit hard to take though.

I only have to drive once a month here into town so I go in clean at those times of the month (they do test for it here, even out in the back blocks) and I much prefer the herbal relief to those of the chemical pills that they're allowed to foist off on me here these last 2 decades, other than that there's no place in this village that I can't hobble to within 10mins on a fair day (and everything I really need here is actually within a block of me so it's even easier).

Pricing is an unknown here yet, but hopefully it may fall into my $6.50-8.50 per script per month job here as someone who is made a pensioner through spinal damage incurred while working ("forced retirement" it maybe called over there after over 20yrs of service) is entitled to.

Cheers.

A few years ago I read an article about some Canadians who were developing a test for DUI suspects that test a person's ability to function and safely drive autos without breath or blood analyzing. It measured your skill level, not whether there is drugs or alcohol detected.

I'm trying to find it with no luck so far.

Drugs aren't the only thing that impairs. They allow you to drive on virus, fever or bacteria. Not smart, but legal.

Ouch! "forced retirement" after 20 years service. Sorry to hear that. No cheer as you say.

My hat is off to you for keeping your sanity after 20 years of big pharma. Great job. I've had a couple reconstruction surgeries that took months to heal. The bone work took years to never. har... I hated taking the stuff. I can't imagine doing it for years. I'd be in the rubber room.

Plus just look at what is going on here with big pharma pain drugs epidemic.

As to driving and or out in public, don't be stupid. Simple. Now force DUI testing with out cause at DUI check points is another thing.

We've had the lick test here for several years now, you're either negative or positive, the later gets a mouth swab for testing, if you fail that you get put off the road for 24hrs and then await the results from the lab which comes in the form of court attendance papers.

Cheers.

Not counting letting those folks go to work, the market, church and schools and spread their joy, just to name a few. Cruise ships, my favorite. Sorry I drift. har...

Thankfully we don't have "big pharma" or "big medical" here either, that's why we're called a "Social Democracy", but you also do have the option to go the "big" way if you wish (after you get through all the red tape or the O.S. costs). ;-)

Cheers.

Are you tested for just cause (you did something stupid, long list of things here) or is every one forced to be tested without just cause say at a DUI checkpoints? To be honest I'm not sure what they do here. I know if the LEO smell either you are tested for just cause. I'll have to look that up now. har...

Over here any police vehicle can be a random mobile alcohol and drug testing unit, but they do checkpoint style too.

Although I personally dislike Police Checkpoints when there is no specific reason, IE: A fleeing felon.

The legal reasoning in the USA is that driving is a privilege, not a right.

Actually I thought the legal reasoning was that there are highway men about and you are not secure in you papers on the road, going back to stage coach robbers and the conditions at the time of adoption.

‘Streamlined’ process to create better medicinal cannabis access.

Australians will soon have better access to unregistered medicinal cannabis.

A proposal was made at the COAG Health Council meeting on Friday for streamlined access, with the state government agreeing to collaborate with other states, territories, and the Commonwealth.

A nationally consistent online application pathway would be created for the application and approval processes for unregistered medicinal cannabis products.

The process would avoid the doubling of decisions of clinical appropriateness, while maintaining the separate approvals by states and territories necessary in managing appropriate access to drugs of addiction.
Cheers.

Legalising cannabis adds $3.6bn to Australian economy, budget office says.

Legalising cannabis would reap the Australian economy almost $2bn a year, the Parliamentary Budget Office has found.

The Greens plan to not only decriminalise cannabis but also legalise it for adult use is the latest case study of political differences, with both Labor and the Coalition looking into legalising it for medicinal use, but going no further.

But claiming that the “war on drugs had failed”, the Greens leader, Richard Di Natale, last week proposed the full legalisation of cannabis, which would allow adults to grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use.
Cheers.
