Petition Not tax medicinal cannabis

The Government of Jersey is currently proposing the idea of taxing medicinal cannabis in order to relieve some debt that was caused from the COVID-19 pandemic. This is not fair for people with chronic pain issues as they would have to pay extra for their medication.

More details

Private prescriptions are currently tax free, why should medicinal cannabis be taxed. Even Dr Matt Doyle of the PCB said that it should be treated as another drug. If this is the case, why is it potentially going to be taxed?
