“By shifting from a criminalisation model to a regulated framework, we could see economic development, job creation in regional Australia, and substantial tax revenue to fund treatment and prevention of harm programs.”

– John Ryan, CEO of Penington Institute

Australia is seeing a steady expansion of Australia’s medicinal cannabis sector, despite enduring barriers to access such as affordability and lack of knowledge among healthcare professionals. In addition, our current prohibition model has proven ineffective at preventing people from consuming cannabis.

Following the success of Cannabis in Australia 2022, this years’ report focuses on new evidence and policy developments. It provides accurate and up-to-date data on Australian trends, attitudes and approaches relating to both medicinal cannabis and illicit use.

Penington Institute continues to advocate for balanced cannabis policies, replacing fearmongering with evidence-based knowledge.
