Helen Kellys oncologist wanted to prescribe natural cannabis for her cancer treatment, but the Ministry of Health would not let him. Lets educate our doctors about the medical benefits of cannabis so they can help overturn prohibition.The goal is to educate doctors on the medical benefits of cannabis and get them on board as advocates and agents of change.

The Ministry of Health is breaking the law to enforce prohibition, its hot. The time has never been better to engage with the medical community on the issue.

The funds will be used to take a team of doctors, patients and volunteers to the largest medical conference in the North Island in June of this year.

We will take the latest scientific literature on cannabis from around the world, personal testimony from patients, and the professional opinions of doctors who are brave enough to publicly support change.

The funds are needed for:

- $6750 for the stand.

- $1250 for the power/broadband/staff entry costs.

Cannabis is a health issue, not a criminal issue. Im involved because it could be earning tax and helping patients. Under the current system it helps gangs, criminalising thousands of citizens every year, and costs NZ over 50,000,000 dollars annually. The rest of the world is waking up to the lies, C'mon NZ! https://www.drugfoundation.org.nz/lets-talk-about-pot/end-cannabis-prohibition

All funds raised benefit:

The education of Doctors in medical Cannabis, at the North Island GP conference 2017.
