DANIEL GEORGE, who has been campaigning for the legalisation and decriminalisation of marijuana as a medicine for his sick children, sees the proposed legislation as nothing more than a “political bluff”.
He said he is not in agreement with the limited number of four male plants an individual can cultivate without a licence as he wants to boil the roots for his children.
He said around this election time there are a lot of promises, but he is not letting his guard down. He is going ahead with his campaign to legalise marijuana for its medicinal purposes.
George’s two daughters Faith, seven, and Makeda, five, suffer with asthma and have constant seizures. The medication which has been prescribed by doctors, he said, leaves them cranky and drowsy, and they are unable to sleep. He said because of their condition the children are under performing at school.
Earlier this year, George embarked on the Sawic Legalise Marijuana campaign after his research proved that medicinal marijuana can help cure his children.
