The Victorian Government's plan to give medical cannabis to severely sick people is in full bloom, with Premier Daniel Andrews proudly showing off the first images of his state's marijuana crop.
Back in April, Victoria became the first Australian state to legalise cannabis for medicinal purposes. The Access to Medicinal Cannabis Bill 2015 will give Victorian patients -- and their families -- legal, safe and secure access to the drug in "exceptional circumstances".
The government has said children with severe epilepsy "where other forms have treatment have not worked" will be the first group eligible to access the treatment.
On Friday, Andrews shared images of the budding crop of marijuana plants on Facebook.
Of course, someone was bound to make a wise-crack comment, and Andrews responded wonderfully:
As we reported last month, Andrews is leading arguably the most progressive government in Australia, legislating to support domestic violence measures, the Safe Schools Coalition LGBTI support program, an Australia-first LGBTI "pride centre" and more.
