Medicinal Cannabis in Western Australia

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious about medicinal cannabis laws in Western Australia? Let's answer some frequently asked questions.

Can I drive while taking medicinal cannabis in Perth?

If your medicinal cannabis treatment contains THC, the answer is no. It is illegal to drive in Western Australia with any detectable level of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in your system, regardless of whether you have a prescription for medicinal cannabis. THC is the intoxicating compound in cannabis that can cause impairment.

This means that even if you no longer feel impaired by the medicinal cannabis, you could still face charges of drug driving if caught with any THC in your system.

However, if your medicinal cannabis treatment contains CBD only, you can drive legally. Your Polln doctor will assist you in finding the right treatment or combination of treatments to suit your lifestyle. They will ensure it aligns with your ability to drive safely and complies with local regulations.
