Altmed #5 – Cannabis Driving Laws
In this week’s podcast, Mitch and Andrew discuss the implications of a recent drug driving legislation, and how this new policy will play out in Victoria.
On the 14th of October 2020, the Victorian parliament passed the legislation to allow medicinal cannabis users to drive with the medication in their system. Victoria is the first state in Australia to implement these changes. Mitch and Andrew see this as a hopeful sign that similar legislation could be rolled out across the country in future.
