The Queensland Government has decided to spend $1 million on a trial of one of its new medical cannabis treatments.

The trial in Southport will look at the impact of the drug on people 더킹카지노suffering from chronic and severe pain, the Government said.

The Queensland Government says the drug could ease nausea and pain in people suffering from severe or chronic back pain.

It is the first-ever clinical trial of cannabis therapy to be implemented at the Queensland Public Health Centre.

Health Minister Peter Dutton says the new drug can improve the health of a patient's system and the result will help reduce demand.

"My hope is that it can significantly ease the problem of severe pain and the need for another treatment," he told 774 ABC Brisbane.

"If people can go home with their head up and they feel good and they feel able to function - with the pain reduced - I think we are going to get more people coming down the prescription supply pipeline."

The Queensland Health Service has spent 카지노 사이트more than $200,000 of taxpayer funds to run the예스카지노 trial.

If the drug has the result its aim is to move more patients on to the medical cannabis system rather than simply reduce it.

The Health Service has already said it is committed to further clinical studies which could cost as much as $200,000.

"We are determined to reduce rates of prescription drugs and increase access to this new treatment to improve public health," Dr Dutton said.

"These clinical trials will help us make that commitment."

The Government has also promised more money to the Health Service to tackle the increasing number of people receiving services for more than a year because they are under the age of 18.

The trial was first announced in August, with the Government predicting the results in coming months.
