ONJ, medical cannabis and a nod to Australian cannabis stocks

By Jonathan Jackson. Published at Aug 5, 2019, in Features

I don’t usually watch 60 Minutes. I find it overproduced and overhyped these days and pine for the time when Jana Wendt and George Negus, were going toe-to-toe with people.

I was just a kid back then, but those two alone, along with Ray Martin and Ian Leslie, were part of the reason I wanted to become a journalist or writer or any part of the media industry.

I wanted to wear a tweed jacket and throw it over my shoulder and go into war zones.

I don’t remember that initial 60 Minutes team putting themselves before the story, as seems to happen a lot these days on a variety of current affairs shows, but sometimes the current crop produce a story I am interested in and last night (Sunday, 4 August) it had to do with Olivia Newton John.

Here I go being nostalgic again. As a kid in the time of 60 Minutes’ glory years, I, along with many others, hoped Newton John could be hopelessly devoted to me. I was very much pre-teen in 1978 when Grease came out, so please forgive me.

Today, as a man in his mid-to-late 40s who writes a lot about medical cannabis and related listed companies, my interest is always piqued by medical cannabis based human interest stories.

So when Liz Hayes interviewed Sandy about cannabis use, I felt it was worth repeating Newton John’s fight with stage 4 cancer and how medical cannabis helped her get through it.
