Since publishing a range of stories on medicinal cannabis, many readers have contacted complaining that their GP is unwilling to prescribe what are now legal products.

Others have expressed frustration, claiming their GPs did not understand how to obtain medicinal cannabis approval or the perceived benefits of the medicine.

Dr Tony Bartone, AMA vice president, told he does not see those patient-doctor exchanges changing anytime soon.

There are currently three medicinal cannabis trials ongoing in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
