Petition update

Australian Medicinal Cannabis Symposium in Sydney now just 3 weeks away

Apr 21, 2016 — A busy few months have seen me travel to Israel with the NSW premier Mike Baird, and NSW Chief Scientist Mary O’Kane. We looked at the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme there which sees over 30,000 patients legally receiving medicinal cannabis for a range of serious illnesses and conditions.

Whilst there, we had the pleasure of meeting Professor Raphael Mechoulam and hearing a presentation about his work and the great hope the researchers see for the future of Medicinal Cannabis. Diseases and conditions like cancer, type 1 diabetes, acquired brain injury and stoke were just a few conditions where cannabis treatment is showing great promise.

Next month, on the 14th and 15th May, United in Compassion is pleased to present the 2nd Australian Medicinal Cannabis Symposium in Sydney. A highly subsidised price makes this an easily affordable event of world class.

Some of the most renowned world experts on MC will travel to Australia from around the globe to share their expertise, experience and excitement about this wondrous plant. The Symposium is part of a larger Hemp Expo and will be the first of its kind for Australia.

United in Compassion is working as hard and fast as we can to ensure that patients are not kept waiting much longer for medicinal cannabis to be available to them. We appreciate any support you can give and highly recommend your attendance at the Symposium. For those in the medical profession you are especially encouraged to attend this event so you can best support your patients.
