Tony Bower - medical cannabis trailblazer - released from jail last week!
"There is Justice
Common Sense prevails.
I would like to thank all those who have given or shown support for my release.
It is good to be home with family and friends. I will be taking some time to consider the way forward from here. The Clinical Trials in Victoria will need to be worked through and applications made to NSW Ministry of Health to acquire a License to cultivate, possess and supply cannabis plants for the purposes of scientific research, analysis and study. This will allow Mullaways Medical Cannabis Pty Ltd to legally grow a certain number of Cannabis plants to be made into Mullaways natural, low-dose, non-psychotropic Cannabinoid Tincture to be used in the Clinical Trials, so definitive research on Cannabis and Cannabinoids and there medical benefits may finally be done in Australia.
The NSW Upper House Inquiry recently found its not acceptable to criminalise people for simply trying to achieve pain relief and quality of life, through the legal conventional ways or otherwise. The recognition of cannabis as a medical right has now raised the need for trials and research so cannabis based medications can be developed and produced safely, cheaply and legally to be made readily available from licence Pharmacists and Hospitals.
I am looking forward to my meeting with Andrew Stoner in July so that we can move all of this along.
Tony Bower, Director
Mullaways Medical Cannabis Pty Ltd"
