      Sorry Peter Hall, the only way you’re going to get the medical cannabis you really need is through the black market. On the up side, it’s 10 times cheaper than government-approved rubbish, and 10 times better.
      On the down side, it’s a crime, and you risk being one of the more than 80,000 Australians arrested every year for being in the vicinity of a substance, viz, cannabis
      (the thing is, nobody gets arrested for being ‘stoned’ … the get arrested for ‘possession’, ie, being near it.)

      I don’t know if any of the above or anyone else will read this. About 3 years ago I got diagnosed with an Inoperable brain Aneurysm. This has caused me to now suffer from Bad epilepsy. there is not enough space here to give you all the details but I have little to no memory of even yesterday. My past doesn’t exist. I live day to day. I’m 56 and just about to submit paperwork to NCAT to give Power of Attorney. I’ve done the whole Legal Oil process and it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. Expensive and pretty useless. They only thing that really helps my anxiety and other symptoms is a higher degree of THC. As Bedrocan is impossible to get due to few Doctors to be able to prescribe it, I am left with little choice but to buy illegal products, because the only way I can do it legally is to move to the ACT. That is unfair to me to have to suffer in silence because the Government only want it legal for where they sit. Funny that.

      Please Consider legalizing the use of Medical Cannabis Oil and testing at University Level for driving level of THC in body system , this is not recreational use it is used for healing purpose , Cancer , epilepsy etc proven to work at personal use level – https://cannabinoids.huji.ac.il/

      That’s a pretty impressive line-up of speakers. Let’s hope things keep getting better …
      (the average Ozzie punter is waking up to the horror of the War On Citizens … sorry, ‘Drugs’ … too bad our politicians aren’t interested in living in the present. They prefer the good old days of Australia the Convict Colony)
