By news

“The Federal Government has approved the sale of medicinal marijuana after the first licence for private cultivation was issued last week.” By political reporter Stephanie Anderson

 

ABC News reports that Health Minister Greg Hunt will today announce that Medical Marijuana can be sold in Australia. This is a huge step forward for advocates of the medication, which until now has only been available through illegal means.

Leading the charge for change has been Chairperson of Victoria’s multicultural commission and journalist, Helen Kapalos’ insightful documentary A Life of its Own. The film was inspired during the making of a network news story, which detailed Dan Haslam’s difficult decision to use cannabis to treat his terminal illness, made all the more poignant because the man’s father served for decades as a drug squad police chief.
