7.30 ACT on the ABC
Friday August 8th
- Canberra Cannabis Legislation – The ACT is looking at legislation to allow for the use of medical marijuana. The Greens’ Shane Rattenbury advocates for it whilst the AMA cautions against, at least for now.
- Cosmo Cooma – Cooma could be the cosmopolitan capital of rural NSW. Its stories of migration and acceptance are being retold in front of the fire – and on the stage.
- Circus Kids – The kids of Warehouse Circus perform their tricks and tell their stories. They have a new show. Playing at Belconnen Community Theatre.
- A Nobler Prize – Canberra’s Butet Manurung has won a major international award (known as the Asian Nobel Prize) for her work providing alternative education for indigenous people in isolated and remote parts of Indonesia.
