Cannabis to stay illegal in Queensland: Cameron Dick

The Brisbane Times reports (1.3.16) on Health Minister, Cameron Dick, asserting that, despite moves to legalise cannabis for medicinal uses, the substance would for now remain illegal for recreational use.

‘Any prospect of marijuana being decriminalised in Queensland is still a long way off, the state’s health minister says.

‘Cameron Dick’s comments come after the government this week released draft legislation that could allow doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis by the end of the year.

‘Although focused on medical treatment and not wider use, Mr Dick did leave the door open for decriminalisation eventually.’
