Medical cannabis advocate, Lucy Haslam – WOAE056

Lucy Haslam has been a leading advocate for patient access to medical cannabis since witnessing the relief her son Dan had from using cannabis when he was terminally ill. Lucy has been at the forefront of a movement to introduce medical cannabis in Australia and continues her work due to inadequacies of the current system.

This conversation follows from earlier episodes explaining what is medical cannabis, what are the regulatory frameworks in Australia, the market forces impacting a lack of investment in clinical trials which limits the number of registered cannabis products, and developments in cannabinoid science. You may wish to listen to these first to contextualise this most recent discussion.
