Synthetic Cannabinoids (Synthetic Cannabis)

Synthetic cannabinoids are a range of synthetic substances that are designed to mimic the effect of cannabis. These substances are prohibited under Schedule 9 of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP).

The ACT adopts the SUSMP under the Medicines, Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 2008. The sale, manufacture or possession of synthetic cannabis is therefore prohibited in the ACT.
