The predominant use of illicit sources of cannabis is the relatively limited number of official permits issued under the TGA SAS-B at the time the investigation was conducted. In the 6 months prior to September 2018, when CAMS-18 was opened, fewer than 1200 SAS-B approvals were issued in Australia and approximately 3000 approvals were issued during the study`s enrollment period (September 2018 to March 2019). Notably, however, within 6 months of the completion of the CAMS-18 survey in March 2019, an additional 13,000 approvals were granted[6] and the total number of approvals in January 2020 was approximately 30,000, affecting more than 18,000 patients [6, 9]. Future CAMS surveys will attempt to examine this significant expansion of regulatory approvals and the impact on medical cannabis users. “The data suggest that we have seen a transition from the illegal to legal use of medical cannabis,” said lead researcher Professor Nicholas Lintzeris of the University of Sydney`s Faculty of Medicine and Health.

Medical cannabis is a medicine that comes from the cannabis plant (also known as marijuana). Medical cannabis can relieve the symptoms of certain medical conditions. In terms of medical use, the fact that cannabis is an addictive substance and tends to aggravate the course of psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia has proven to be a warning against its use as medicine. The Australia Centre for Cannabinoid Clinical and Research Excellence (ACRE) was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) through the Centres for Research Excellence program in 2017 and is the first Australian government-funded research centre for medical cannabinoids.12 Much of the current research is conducted under the auspices of the Lambert Foundation, 13 that is funded by a philanthropist. whose granddaughter`s epilepsy could only be controlled by cannabis.

Data were excluded for 70 respondents who provided no information other than demographic questions, three respondents who reported that their cannabis use was not for medical purposes, and seven who gave implausible answers to many questions.
