Amnesty for terminally ill child

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Rebecca Bridson
17 Merval Court

Total Signatures - 2061

Sponsoring Member: Steve Dickson MP

Posting Date: 7/10/2016

Closing Date: 31/10/2016

Tabled Date: 1/11/2016

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 1/12/2016

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draw to the attention of the House:  Steve Peek has advised that doctors have tried every legal medication on his 8 year old daughter Suli, who has a regressive neurological disorder that causes multiple chronic seizures, but that nothing has worked. Suli now needs palliative care in a Brisbane hospital. Mr Peek wants to be granted amnesty to administer whole plant medicinal cannabis to his daughter in an effort to stop her seizures and provide her with quality of life, as her diagnosis is terminal.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to grant an amnesty for Steve Peek to administer whole plant medicinal cannabis to his terminally ill 8 year old daughter when in hospital.
