    In Australia, doctors are not permitted to advertise that they prescribe specific medications. This is in line with the Therapeutic Goods legislation and the professional and ethical standards of the Medical Board of Australia and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). A number of private medicinal cannabis clinics have opened facilities in multiple locations across Australia, slightly easing access issues. A number of hospitals also have authorised prescribers for specific medicinal cannabis products, often linked to a compassionate access scheme or clinical research study.
