Medicinal cannabis crops are now legal in Australia after new laws came into effect.

The Act also allows for eligible businesses to manufacture cannabis-related products and conduct related research for medicinal uses. With these changes, it aims to ensure there would be a domestic supply of medicinal cannabis products not readily available for import.

Health Minister Minister Sussan Ley said the changes would give patients and doctors access to a safe, reliable and legal source of cannabis for medicinal use. Until Sunday, it was hard for Australian patients to access medicinal marijuana from overseas sources, Sydney Morning Herald reports. While recreational use is still prohibited (and probably will be for a long time), and states and territories still dictate who can use medicinal marijuana products, this change to federal guidelines could really open up the local industry.

“It is important that doctors have a wider range of options for treating their patients”, she said.

This combined with a change to the Therapeutic Goods Act taking medicinal marijuana out the act’s most harshly controlled schedules means major changes to the role of the drug in Australia.
