    So wonderful to see that the local constabulary have nothing else to do !
    I have it on, reasonably, good account that in some jurisdictions police are actually forced to investigate real crime. Now obviously, it’s understandable that the good folk of the New South Wales Corps are reluctant to become involved with the likes of those committing violent crime, robbery,rape and any amount of crime that has a real negative impact on our community.
    However, since they are obviously so over staffed and underemployed, perhaps they could be induced to pursue those responsible for the grand larceny and corruption ingrained in the political processes of this state, and no doubt the Federal government as well. It would be novel to see these criminal politicians brought to justice by the “forces of law and order” and not some royal commission or ICAC investigation, costing millions,taking years if not decades and resulting in a slap on the wrist or demotion for those committing the worst atrocities against our communities.

    I hope it was ‘medical cannabis’ so she can appear as another helper of people dealing with stress, pain and, even, death. I am dealing with emphysema and morphine and the latter can knock me around, so it is such a relief when I get a batch of cannabis biscuits. I notice that throughout this area of medical cannabis vs the law, not much has been mentioned on the intake of the cannabis. Inhalation or digestion?

    Needless to say, inhalation is deleterious to the lungs bringing about emphysema, (and other lung conditions). Believe me, life has lost its fun when making a cup of tea is both stressing and exhausting. Those who back medical cannabis need to become more vocal about this and advise eating it.
