Medicinal Cannabis & Prescribing Codeine
Debates about prohibition of cannabis have a long history, as has the proposal for medicinal cannabis in Australia.
Clinical trials have shown moderate quality evidence the substance can help treat chronic pain and spasticity and potentially reduce chemotherapy-related nausea.
The changes on February 1, 2018 will see codeine products ‘upscheduled’, meaning people who use the products for health issues like back pain, migraines, period pain, dental pain or cold and flu will have to go to the doctor to get access to them.
