Community backs decision to allow cannabis for medicine

OUR Facebook community is in full support of the federal government's decision to allow cannabis to be grown for medicine in Australia. 

Geoff Emery No doubt growing will be done similarly to opium poppy crops. This would ensure stable concentrations and quality of active constituents.This ban has been stupid from the start and has prevented medical science from utelising a plentiful, natural source of medicine. Just US scaremongering depriving the world of benefits, once again.

Daryl Hemming: Who's going to do the growing and distribution of it?
