Brief summary

The Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) is conducting a survey to learn more about people who take medical cannabis (with or without a prescription) in terms of the conditions/symptoms they take it for, what they take, how often and what advice they’ve received from medical practitioners and pharamacists about taking medical cannabis and driving. We are also interested in understanding how their use of medical cannabis influences their decisions to drive or not, and if they do drive, how they manage their driving in relation to taking medical cannabis. Information gained from this survey will be used to inform evidence-based policy. The link to the survey is here.
