The photos are of course recently legalised medicinal marijuana crops, which are being grown by the state of Victoria and will be made available to those in need. The state-sanctioned nature of the crops explains the absence of the usual #420 #blazeit hashtags that would usually accompany such a photo on social media. It was funny to see Andrews boast that the crops have been “tested and sampled” in a following Tweet however.
No word on who was actually testing the weed on a taxpayer-funded salary though. Shoutout to whoever scored that job.
Andrews followed up by promising the weed will be ready in two months, before declaring “In 2017, we’ll make this life-saving treatment available to the sick kids who need it most.”
So, I guess politicians can freely Tweet photos of weed now. 2016 is crazy.
