Although recreational marijuana is illegal in Australia, medical marijuana has been legalised here since 2016. But what’s the difference? And why can’t you just go ask your doctor for a script right now? Join us as we puff on about the science behind medical marijuana and the ground-breaking research on it happening right here in Tassie! This week we hear from Dr Sandra Garland, an agricultural researcher working on growing Tasmanian medical marijuana, and Luke Ney, a medical research PhD student working on the natural cannabinoids in the human body.
Hosts: Niamh Chapman and Allanna Russell
