Dear Department of Health,
I am requesting under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 any information on the new medicinal marijuana usage. I would like to request information about how many people has the medicinal marijuana been used on previously and how long will the drug be used for for medical reasons.
I am also requesting for any written documentation regarding the new legalisation of medicinal marijuana in NSW dating back between 2014 and 2016.

relation to NSW legislation. This part of your scope may be better placed
with NSW Health.
