Victoria first state to legalise medical marijuana

VICTORIA has beaten New South Wales in becoming the first state to legalise medical marijuana. 

Children with severe epilepsy will have first access to clinical trials early next year.

A small-scale marijuana cultivation will also be trialled at a Victorian facility.

"It's absolutely heartbreaking to see families having to choose between breaking the law and watching their children suffer, and now ... they won't have to," Health Minister Jill Hennessy said.
