These slides illustrate cover: - An overview of the medicinal cannabis landscape in Australia - Cannabis roadside testing in South Australia - Differences between impairment and presence and the fines - Why and how the current drug driving laws are discriminatory and ineffective - How international counterparts are managing patients - A change in the law that is fair, equal, and improves public health while protecting legal medical cannabis patients.
