There are legal consequences for the use or possession of marijuana including for personal use, but medicinal cannabis is allowed if accessed through the proper channels.

Local Laws

NT Cannabis Laws

It is illegal to possess, supply or cultivate cannabis in the Northern Territory. This includes cannabis in all forms such as oils, resin (hash), extracts, seeds, and plants. All of these are considered offences that could lead to penalty units and/or a prison sentence.

When it comes to possession in the NT, any amount less than 50 grams of marijuana, so long it is within your home, could lead to a maximum 50 penalty unit fine. From July 1 2022 to June 30 2023, a single penalty unit is $162, which means 50 penalty units is an $8,100 fine. If you possess even a small amount in public, you could face a 2-year prison sentence or a very steep 200 penalty unit ($30,400) fine.

Legal Access

Darwin CBD Oil and Medicinal Cannabis Access

In Darwin, access to medicinal cannabis is much the same as in most other states in Australia, where approval is only needed from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). As the great majority of cannabis products for medicinal use are unapproved by the TGA, they can only be prescribed to patients after they have been approved for access.

This means a patient must visit a medical practitioner and have a thorough discussion on the research, negative effects, and other relevant cautions for using medical marijuana. When both patient and doctor have agreed to the use of medicinal cannabis, the doctor will then apply for the TGA’s approval.

Legal Information

Legally Access Cannabis in Darwin

Northern Territory does not have any specific schemes or requirements for access to medicinal marijuana with one exception. If using medical marijuana has proven to be successful as a treatment, and the patient will be continuing its use for over 2 months, the Chief Health Officer must receive a notification.

If a product is included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), no approval is needed, and a doctor may prescribe the medicine without further application. There are only a few such cannabis products in Australia. For CBD oils that are classified as schedule 3 drugs, you may be able to purchase from behind the counter at a pharmacy, but at present, there are no approved goods on the registry.
