As a part of a deep dive into the concept of recreational pot, Australia’s second-most populous state is country-sourcing their information. If Victoria (the State known for Melbourne, Shiraz and Aussie rules football) likes what they see, drug law reform may follow.

Australia’s medical marijuana market, according to the committee, needs to streamline federal and State requirements for patients to access medicinal marijuana. The country made progress in 2017 with the help of a few Canadian cannabis producers.

Also, CanniMed Therapeutics delivered the very first commercial shipment of medicinal marijuana oil to the western shores of Perth, Australia.
