A Select Committee in WA will be looking into issues regarding accessing medical cannabis and opportunities for industrial hemp in the state. Last week, Western Australia’s State Government agreed to allow the Legalise Cannabis -Western Australia Party to lead an inquiry. The party’s Dr Brian Walker MLC will be chairing the committee, which will report back to Parliament on the potential to amend current regulations. “I’m looking forward to the day when I can share some time with the Premier, discussing all the ways that we can enhance the lives of Western Australians,” said Dr. Walker. The Western Australian Electoral Commission registered the Legalise Cannabis-Western Australia Party in January this year. The Party believes there are significant economic benefits in developing a cannabis and hemp textile industry in the state, that the administration of medicinal cannabis in WA is a mess, and prices for medicines are too high for patients. The party is the second state party to be formed in Australia with the support of the Medical Cannabis Users Association of Australia Inc (MCUA).
