Victorian politicians are rushing to spruik one of the major policy commitments of the Andrews government: a trial of medical cannabis. Daniel Andrews posted a photo of the crop to Facebook on Friday, with Sex Party MLC Fiona Patten also getting a pic with the plants:

Courting the 420 vote seems to be going well.

As a Crikey subscriber and someone who began working as a journalist in 1957, I am passionate about the importance of independent media like Crikey. I met a lot of Australians from many walks of life during my career and did my best to share their stories honestly and fairly with their fellow citizens.

And I never forgot how important it is to hold politicians to account. Crikey does that – something that is more important now than ever before in Australia.
