Medicinal cannabis under debate


The Victorian Labor party is pushing for the legalisation of medicinal cannabis. While research in this area of medicine is still new and underdeveloped, the party is excited about a Victoria that allows people with serious illnesses the right to cannabis oils.

Dragana Mrkaja spoke to Opposition Minister for Health, Gavin Jennings, and Dr Luke Downey.
