Are you a cancer patient or survivor who has used cannabis for cancer?

Cancer Council SA is conducting a study to assess Australian cancer patients’ attitudes, beliefs, and practices in the use of cannabis for cancer. This information will help to inform a larger examination of cancer-related cannabis use in Australia and the medicinal cannabis information and policy provided by Cancer Councils.

Participation in this study involves completing a confidential telephone interview with a trained researcher, discussing a number of topics related to your cancer and cannabis use.
