Drug driving charge thrown out in landmark case


A driver with a prescription for medicinal cannabis oil has had a charge of drug driving dismissed by an Adelaide magistrate in a landmark finding.

Now Brenton Peters, who says the cannabis oil provides him with relief from the muscle cramps and stiffness associated with his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, and his legal team are calling for changes to driving laws.

Mr Peters is one of 3500 Australian’s to be legally prescribed the oil which contains equal parts THC, the compound which causes the “high” and cannabidiol, which is used to treat medical conditions.
