Mr Anderson told the Premier of his intention to introduce a Private Members Bill seeking the approval for the use of cannabis by terminally ill patients.
Mr Anderson said “the Premier listened intently while I explained the issue to him and the circumstances surrounding my decision to try and change the laws.
“I told him about the Haslam family from Tamworth and the heartbreaking circumstances facing 24 year old Dan Haslam who has terminal cancer and his use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
“The Premier was sympathetic and agreed the time has come to address this issue and he supported my bid to work up a private members bill.
