Australia is set to introduce legislation that will legalize the licensed growth of marijuana for medical research purposes.
The bill before Australia’s parliament will amend half-century-old drug regulations to create a licensing program for cannabis cultivation, reports the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
The marijuana in question will be used in scientific research, particularly concerning palliative care for those with chronic painful conditions.
Health Minister Sussan Ley noted that the bill does not concern recreational marijuana use, which is illegal across Australia.
“This product is not one that you smoke, it’s not something that might be out there illegally,” Ley said.
Although the cameras are often pointed at world-class models flaunting cutting-edge fashion trends on the runway, it is the mannequins in pedestrian display windows—from Manhattan’s luxurious Fifth Avenue displays to Beijing’s small shop windows—with whom most consumers identify.
The mannequin: slim, chic, avant-garde. Ever fixed in position, the placid figures entice predisposed passerbys to fork up the remainder of last week’s paycheck to redefine themselves with the season’s latest line.

(MEXICO CITY) — An Indian-American actor and designer who was turned away from an airline flight after refusing to remove his Sikh turban during a security check said he’s “thrilled” that Aeromexico is vowing to overhaul its screening protocols.
In an interview Tuesday night at a Mexico City hotel where he ended up extending his stay by two nights, Waris Ahluwalia also expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support on social media that he believes helped pressure airline executives to change and apologize.
Ahluwalia showed an excerpt from an email that he said came from Aeromexico.
