    Police officers were patrolling a local Florida neighborhood when they noticed something truly unexpected! A dog was spotted skateboarding outside his home in Jacksonville and he’s pretty good.

    I read Dunne is now criticising the Govt. new medicinal cannabis bill.. here a couple of lines from press release:

    ‘The former minister responsible for drug law reform is calling the
    Government’s bill on medicinal cannabis “half baked” and “a pretty sad
    gimmick” that fails to give sick people immediate access to good products.’

    ‘Peter Dunne, who used to be associate health minister, said the bill was
    underwhelming and the product of a naive 100-day pledge.’

    BUT Dunne, could have done so much more in 9 LOOOONG years.. now he’s a sideline critic instead 😦
