First Medicinal Cannabis Shipments Arrive In Australia

The first two commercial shipments of medicinal cannabis products have arrived in Australia under the federal government's new policy to allow controlled importation.

The shipments to Melbourne and Perth, both from Canada, are expected to be followed by others throughout the month.

Children suffering from epilepsy and patients dealing with side effects caused by cancer treatment were most likely to benefit from the products, Health Minister Greg Hunt said on Wednesday.
