Medical cannabis epilepsy pilot update

2 February 2021

Mr DULUK: Thank you, sir. My question is to the Premier. Can the Premier please update the house on the progress of the government's pilot to trial the use of medical cannabis to treat children with epilepsy, and what is the expected time frame for the rollout of that pilot? Sir, with your leave and that of the house, I will further explain.


Mr DULUK: It is now more than 12 months since the government announced its intention to create a medical cannabis trial as outlined in the Governor's speech to parliament in 2020.

The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta—Minister for Education) (15:45): As the minister responsible to the House of Assembly for portfolio responsibilities in the health area, I am very pleased to take that question on notice. I will speak to the Minister for Health and bring back an answer for the house.
