KATY Gallagher has thrown the subject of medical marijuana to the untender mercies of the Abbott Government.
In a letter to a constituent the Chief Minister writes she has referred the matter:
I believe a national approach is required and as such, I have written to the Federal Minister for Health Minister Dutton, to request that the Commonwealth Government takes the lead on developing a national approach on medical cannabis. I have suggested that Minister Dutton look at the possibility of a clinical trial and consider also the option of a national summit which would bring together Australian chief health officers and key stakeholders to identify an approach to this issue.
In addition, I plan to place medical cannabis on the agenda of the Council of Australian Governments Health Council and I have asked the ACT Health Director-General to raise it through the Australian Health Minister’s Advisory Council.
Of particular note throughout the entire concert was the tone projection, superb intonation and beauty of sound from viola player Lisa Berthaud, writes reviewer TONY MAGEE after seeing the Skride Piano Quartet concert.
