The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions. Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.
However, scientific study of the chemicals in marijuana, called cannabinoids, has led to two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoids in the United States. Continued research may lead to more medications.
Because the marijuana plant contains chemicals that may help treat a range of illnesses and symptoms here in Australia, many people argue that it should be legal for medical purposes.
At Aussie Canna we believe that each Australian citizen should have the legal right to access both Medical and Recreational Cannabis if needed.
Each day we see many around us have legal access to harmful products such as nicotine, alcohol and even toxic energy drinks not to mention pharmaceutical poison that are responsible for killing millions each year. But the harmless Cannabis plant still responsible for zero deaths world wide remains illegal to recreational users and extremely difficult for medical patients to obtain here in Australia, once they have jumped through the endless amount of hoops the government puts before all applicants they are placed on a waiting list that is endless. Even seriously ill children and people with severe illness are made to suffer because of what seems to be corruption of the cruelest kind and or political nonsense which is becoming normal in this country. While all of us in this wonderful community try our best to show the need for this medicinal plant to be made more accessible, there is still a great need for numbers of unity to show the government this is real medicine saving lives and not something associated with a stigma from the 70's hippie era. The power of this plant is clear when we all see the endless illness's and conditions its able to ease or completely erase, its truely like no other and proof of its healing qualities are abundant and clear with the endless studies now being published and
great groups being formed such as Aussie Canna. We ask you all to become part of this movement and help break the lies and stigma associated, and help us all learn and educate each other and make some of the best medicinal cannabis the world can see, from the most beautiful country on earth , Australia.
