Cutting Through the Haze | Public Event
Monday 21 May, 6.00-8.30pm

Much confusion exists around medicinal cannabis. Access to this valuable herbal medicine is extremely difficult in Australia, forcing patients to have to procure medicinal cannabis illegally. Yet the science indicates that it is beneficial for a range of medical conditions including chronic pain, cancer-related symptoms, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, anxiety and many others. The evidence also indicates it is relatively safe when prescribed correctly.

Come along to Cutting Through the Haze and hear for yourself the truth and facts about medicinal cannabis.

This public event is presented by the National Institute of Integrative Medicine (NIIM) and the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), and will feature US medicinal cannabis expert Dr Jeffrey Hergenrather MD, and Amazon John Easterling, who has been involved in the medicinal cannabis industry for many years. Meet patients and hear their success stories, and hear from patient advocate Carol Ireland (Epilepsy Action Australia) who has been fighting for change to access for medicinal cannabis in Australia for several years.
