PREMIER Denis Napthine says he supports the decision of the medical administration not to legalise medicinal marijuana, even after it has been revealed it saved a young girl’s life.

Victorian mum Cheri O’Connell spoke out about the benefits of liquid marijuana, which she says saved her epileptic daughter who was only given months to live.

“They base their decisions on the best medical advice and science. That’s the way these decisions ought to be based and I support that process.”
