NSW Gov – Medicinal Cannabis Compassionate Use Scheme


The NSW Government has developed the Medicinal Cannabis Compassionate Use Scheme to extend compassion to adults with a terminal illness. This Scheme was formerly named the Terminal Illness Cannabis Scheme.
The scheme provides guidelines for NSW Police Force officers to help them determine the appropriate circumstances in which to use their discretion not to charge adults with terminal illness who use cannabis and/or cannabis products to alleviate their symptoms, as well as carers who assist them.
NSW residents who are aged 18 years and over who have a terminal illness are eligible to register for the scheme……….
