The Mardi Grass festival kicks off in Nimbin

Nimbin’s cannabis festival, Mardi Grass, kicks off tonight with a fashion show and the Great Green Cabaret, featuring musos, poets, comedians, and more.

The festival will also include speakers like Leader of the Reason Party Fiona Patten, Greens Senator David Shoebridge, and President of the Legalise Cannabis Party Michael Balderstone.

The road to cannabis legislation has certainly been long, but how near are we to the end?
