Australia to lift ban on medical cannabis


(CNN)The Australian government has announced plans to allow cannabis
to be legally grown for medical and scientific purposes.
Under current laws, marijuana is classified as an illegal drug,
and while penalties vary from state to state, people who grow, use, possess
or sell it can be fined or sent to prison.

In a statement Saturday, the government said the Narcotics Drugs Act 1967
would be amended to allow the drug to be grown locally,
without breaching the country's international obligations
as a signatory to the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961.

"This Government is incredibly sympathetic to the suffering of those Australians
with debilitating illnesses and we want to enable access to the most effective
medical treatments available," Health Minister Sussan Ley said in a statement.
