Why the rush for unregulated cannabis oils as medicine?
The current push for the NSW and Federal Governments to abandon testing strictures on the medical use of cannabis oils is likely due to recreational cannabis users seeking quicker access to medical cannabis for their recreational use.
Legislators must recognise that the latest form of recreational use of cannabis is via cannabis oils and tinctures being used with e-cigarettes or vaporiser pens. This form of smoking emits an odourless vapour that allows a recreational user to smoke undetected by police in public.[viii] Cannabis oils and other useable concentrates can have THC contents as high as 80%,[ix] (most smoked cannabis has 3% THC), which opens the use of high THC preparations for medical use to severe recreational abuse proliferating the dangers of public intoxication which Australians do not want according to various Australian surveys such as the yearly Quantum poll.
