Drug Foundation defends cannabis referendum campaign

From Morning Report, 8:36 am on 12 June 2020

The Drug Foundation is defending a campaign that's being labelled "misleading".

The ad, which encourages people to vote "yes" in the upcoming cannabis referendum, mentions "medicinal treatment".

Critics say medicinal cannabis is already able to be prescribed by GPs, and is not what the referendum is about.

Ross Bell, executive director of the Drug Foundation, speaks to Corin Dann.
