Dear OIA Requests,

Thank you for your response, it is appreciated.

Regarding: "Total amount of medical cannabis products recalled including product details, why they
were recalled and how many patients were affected. "

Are you able to provide how many patients were affected as this is not available in the links provided?

Regarding: "Any information about how effective the recall was, including how many patients returned
their product "

I don't believe that this should be refused entirely under section 9 (2)(b)(ii) of the Act. Please consider releasing the size of the batches recalled, specifically Kikuya Arroyo, and how much of this batch was dispensed.

If specifics can't be provided, please apply these questions to the medical cannabis scheme as a whole and not broken down into product type (ie Total amount of medical cannabis units recalled & Any information about how effective the recall was, including total amount of units returned, since April 1 2020)

Thanks again for your time.

Yours sincerely,

M WOODWARD
