Lucy Haslam repulsed by medicinal cannabis laws, calls on nation to #FixDansLaw | The Northern Daily Leader

March 6, 2019
This is a heart breaking story of a woman who lost her son to colon cancer. She is actively speaking out and starting a campaign to #FixDansLaw in memory of her son and support for cannabis reform.
She is calling on people to post #FixDansLaw selfies, contact federal Labor leader Bill Shorten and Opposition health spokeswoman Catherine King to ask them where they stand, and urge doctors to get educated.
“Medicinal cannabis products remain unapproved by the TGA and these drugs can only be acquired through the Special Access Scheme. It ostensibly means all approved options have to be exhausted before doctors can even apply for access for an unapproved cannabis product. It’s a rigmarole doctors do not have time for, Mrs Haslam says.
The process is too protracted, the products are shrouded in mystery, doctors can’t advertise they’re prepared to prescribe and patients still find it easier to go to the black market. “More and more people are being criminalised for being sick,” she said.¬†“It is really poor public health policy.”
