NSW Opposition leader pushes for legal medicinal cannabis

THE law should be changed as soon as possible to make it legal for people suffering terminal illness to be treated with medicinal cannabis, NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley says.

Mr Foley called for a "more ambitious" legal approach than the NSW Government's plan to give police the discretion not to charge terminally ill cannabis users.

"I'd like to see us cross party lines here and change the law so that the terminally ill and their loved ones need never fear prosecution," he said.

"I want to... give people experiencing terrible pain and suffering some hope."
