Medical pot-heads unite
MEDICINAL cannabis supporters will
rally together this Saturday, calling on the
State Government to loosen marijuana
restrictions in the wake of the recent
raid on Hillier supplier Jenny Hallam's
Over 300 people are expected to attend the
"peaceful march" at Adelaide's Parliament
House on Saturday, before heading to nearby
Speaking to The Bunyip, Jenny Hallam
-- who was reported for drug-related offences
after police raided her home, seizing drug
equipment and chemicals -- said she had
received "overwhelming support" since the
She said, despite the perceived
stigma attached to medicinal cannabis,
many users were now publicly pushing
for further deregulation of the drug --
which was made legal, although with
heavy conditions and restrictions, last
"It's all well and good to legalise it, but how
are we going to get it here? We want the
Government to hurry up and start approving
the licences," Mrs Hallam said.
"We are happy to have it tested to make
sure it's safe, but we need them to approve
the licences, because there's companies out
there that are ready to go, and just need their
"We've got Australian Cannabis Corporation
co-founder Ben Fitzsimons who wants to use
the Elizabeth Holden's plant.
"Raiding me and bringing me into the
spotlight was probably the silliest thing the
State Government could have done, because
it's changed people's perception of the drug,
from something that is bad to something that
can save lives.
"It's time to stand up, to show the politicians
and government the overwhelming amount
of support we are getting."
Mrs Hallam, who was supplying the oil to
the sick and terminally-ill for free, claims
pharmaceutical companies were opposed to
legalising medicinal marijuana due to fears
over potential profit losses.
"It all comes down to money and profits,
and it's the pharmaceutical companies who's
stopping it," she said.
"In countries where it has been legalised,
they (pharmaceutical companies) have lost
billions and billions in profits, from people
who have gone off their medication and onto
cannabis oil instead.
"The doctors have not been educated about
anything to do with this, so if they were
really serious about bringing this in, they
would educate the doctors and medical
"The only people who can prescribe
cannabis are certain specialists, and you've
got to find the specialists and meet the
Rally organiser and Mrs Hallam's friend,
Suzy Horne, whose son also uses cannabis
oil for a heart condition, is also calling for
amnesty for cannabis oil users and suppliers.
"Right now, it should be amnesty for all
users and patients, because these people are
already in a vulnerable state; they are sick
and dying," she said.
"These people that Jenny has been helping
had pretty much been given up on by
"Traditional medicine hasn't worked
for them, but cannabis oil has, and now
it's taken away from them, leaving them
to potentially die -- that's a humanity
"It forces them to go to unscrupulous people
who have made stuff in their back shed with
chemicals, and endanger others' lives."
The "Rally for Jenny Hallam" demonstration
kicks off at 10am at Parliament House on
Suzy Horne and Jenny Hallam are organising a demonstration at parliament house to protest
medicinal cannabis regulation.

important component in
developing Australia's first 10-year
Defence Industrial Capability Plan,

Not enough beds
SUFFICIENT bed spaces are not being
provided at the Lyell McEwin Hospital, under
the Transforming Health scheme, according to
figures released by the Opposition last week.
Liberal health spokesman Stephen Wade released
figures, allegedly obtained by a leaked email from
Central Adelaide Local Health Network, showing
mid-week bed occupancy rates at the Lyell
McEwin have remained at more than 100 per cent
since October last year.
"Where occupancy rates are over 100 per cent,
patients are less likely to be admitted when they
need to be, more likely to be left waiting in the
Emergency Department for extended periods, or
treated in corridors or spare rooms," he said.
Mr Wade said the author of the email was highly
critical of the Transforming Health scheme.
