Cannabis presents a distinct situation in the medical field due to its active ingredient THC, which serves as both a prescribed medicine and an illegal recreational drug. This duality can create uncomfortable circumstances for users.
Despite being legally permitted to use medical cannabis while traveling between states, working, or engaging in everyday activities like going to the shops (similar to any other prescribed medication), many patients choose not to take their medical marijuana outside their homes. This hesitancy is driven by the fear of potential encounters with law enforcement, border security, or their employers. The exception to this cautious approach is driving, which remains unlawful with any amount of THC in the system in all states except Tasmania.
