Medican is this weekend!, <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>?
Pop down to the Bush Theatre in Nimbin and come and say hello, and if you miss it, we will have it uploaded for you shortly after for your viewing pleasure.
Big week! So much good news and some really conflicting news …
Member of Parliament, Rachel Payne of Legalise Cannabis Victoria, (strange to even type that, let alone be there Rachael) was inaugurated to the Legislative Council of Victoria on 21st February 2023. I’ve put the video just down the page a bit, I recommend giving it a watch, I personally really enjoyed what you said. It takes a lot to bare all for our little plant. Congratulations.
Rachael and David have been campaigning for driving laws and its started to take hold. Dan Andrews said some things I thought I would never hear. Progress, isn’t it wonderful.
The Raw Paper Company, we all know and may or may not love, has gotten themselves in some pretty deep water by falsely declaring themselves as a charity… oops, maybe they just forgot.
Pain Australia, is taking a snapshot of Consumer Patient Care and the process of obtaining regular medicinal cannabis and encourages other companies to get on board.
Towards the bottom of the page, from Urban Dictionary, there’s a bit of a definition for the word “Cannabis”, I liked it so much I felt compelled to share it.
And one more for the road, check the Marijuana Vending Machines out, if anyone’s feeling generous I’d be happy to be a tester. For safety purposes of course 🙂
The NSW election, March 25th, still needs our help.
We would really appreciate any donation you can make, elections are very expensive and while the big boys get a free ride, we have to work for every cent. Skip a coffee, Free the weed.

Urban Dictionary: Cannabis
The point of this entry should really be this: That the word “Cannabis” is not slang at all. Instead it is the accepted botanical Genus name for the plant we know by so many other slang and colloquial terms: Hemp, Pot, Marijuana, Ganja, Weed, etc. etc. (Cannabis sps. sativa, indica, and ruderalis.) Let the word Cannabis remind us that this indigenous herb, which the self-destructive dominator culture feels it needs to persecute so much, is in fact one of the many gifts from the abundant Earth… as natural as the clouds, the rain, the corn in the fields and all the many fruits of our gracious intelligent, and loving planet, Gaia. Show your support: Give a thumbs up and let the readers know that you feel the same way. Let’s make this entry a social and political statement. =)
