Cannabis changes ‘won’t help my son’

Lanai Carter and her son Lindsay say the changes are too little and more needs to be one to make access to medicinal cannabis easier, faster and cheaper. THE mother of a Loganholme teenage boy who needs medicinal cannabis to stop violent seizures said today’s federal government changes to the drug’s importation regulations were not going to help her son. Lanai Carter said her 19-year-old son Lindsay, who has a brain tumour, would still have to jump through bureaucracy at both state and federal levels and there was still no guarantee of a regular supply of the drug.

She said it would still take months to get the drug for her son and buying imported cannabis would be expensive as it was not yet on the federal Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
