This consultation paper sets out the details of the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme and the regulatory proposals needed to support the Scheme. It provides an opportunity for the Ministry of Health to seek feedback from the public, industry, health care professionals and other interested stakeholders on the proposals, with a particular focus on:
- the proposed requirements for domestic cultivation of cannabis for medicinal purposes and manufacture of medicinal cannabis products
- the proposed quality standards that may apply to processes and to medicinal cannabis products
- prescribing requirements, including information that will be available to prescribers on medicinal cannabis products
- proposed requirements after the medicinal cannabis product goes to market
This feedback will help shape the regulatory proposals needed to support the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme.
