Prof John McNeil to chair an expert advisory committee on a clinical trial of medicinal cannabis

The School's Head, Professor John McNeil will chair an expert advisory committee for the Victoria Department of Health on a clinical trial of medicinal cannabis.

A national deal on a New South Wales trial of medicinal marijuana could open the door to its expansion to other states and territories, with several premiers expressing support for a nationwide approach to the issue.

The ACT Government said it would take part in the research, which was announced by the NSW Government last month.  The Victorian Government said the agreement paved the way for a nationwide approach to medicinal marijuana.

"Victoria is playing a leadership role on this significant issue, but we have a far greater chance of success by partnering with NSW and other jurisdictions," Victorian Health Minister David Davis said.
