A doctor has cautioned that Victoria’s current cannabis legislation is leading numerous individuals with chronic illnesses to rely on addictive prescription medications instead.


This warning comes as new proposed laws for the state are being considered, which would permit users to drive with detectable amounts of the drug in their system.


Members of the Legalise Cannabis Party, who secured two seats in the previous election, introduced the bill to the upper house on Wednesday. The proposed changes to the Road Safety Act would remove the offence of having detectable tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in one’s blood or oral fluid for drivers who are otherwise not impaired.
