I am Leader of the Australian Greens Dr Richard Di Natale. AMA about medicinal cannabis reform in Australia or anything else!
My short bio: Leader of the Australian Greens, doctor, public health specialist and co-convenor of the Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy and Law Reform. Worked in Aboriginal health in the Northern Territory, on HIV prevention in India and in the drug and alcohol sector.
I’ll be taking your questions for half an hour starting at about 6pm AEST. Ask me anything on medicinal cannabis reform in Australia.
The Regulator of Medicinal Cannabis Bill is about giving people access to medicine that provides relief from severe pain and suffering. The community wants this reform, the evidence supports it and a Senate committee has unanimously endorsed it. Now all we need is the will to get it done.

Edit: Answering questions now. Let's go!
Edit 2: Running to the chamber to vote on the biometrics bill, back to answer more in a moment!
Edit 3: Back now, will get to a few more questions!
Edit 4: Unfortunately I have to back to Senatoring. All the bad things Scott said about you guys on reddit were terrible, terrible lies. I'll try to get to one or two more later if I can!
