Has The Australian Govt Allowed The Importation Of Illegal “Canntrust” Medical Cannabis
Cannabis grown in unlicensed facilities in Canada by NYSE-listed CannTrust may have found its way to Australia via its distribution deal with Victorian medicinal marijuana company Cannatrek.
The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration said it is Canada’s job to ensure exports are legal and that it hasn’t been notified of any issues by the Canadian authorities. Cannatrek has not responded to requests for comment.
However, cannabis industry expert Rhys Cohen told Business Insider Australia the government’s response is “not good enough” and demonstrates the problems in Australia’s system of importing the drug.
