With a quick visit to your doctors and approval from the TGA, you can smoke, vape, bake, or take marijuana oil in the comforts of your home.
Smoking or vaping weed in public is still frowned upon, so its best to follow the normal smoking laws.
Medical marijuana is available in the form of:
- dry bud (flower)
- vape cartridges
You can order legal weed to smoke or vape online or from your local pharmacy.
