Call to import cannabis cancer treatment

The New South Wales Government says it will ask the Federal Government to support the importation of a cannabis-based drug for cancer, multiple sclerosis and AIDS patients.

The State Government wants to trial the drug Sativex, which delivers a cannabis ingredient through an oral spray or pill.

The drug can be used to counter the wasting aspects of the diseases, and also helps cancer patients with the side effects of chemotherapy.
