Resources for Industry
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is reminding businesses involved with medicinal cannabis products of their regulatory obligations under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (the Act). Regulatory controls on medicinal cannabis minimise the risk of harm from inappropriate use while ensuring that product is available to patients where appropriate. The amount of regulatory control needed to manage risks depends on the product and determines how consumers access the product.
Resources for Consumers
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is warning consumers about the risks of buying medicinal cannabis products online. Medicinal cannabis products bought online may be unsafe, of poor quality or contain a different dose to what the label claims.
