A big, warm hug to, clockwise from top left: Richy Sheehy & Johnny Keenan; Vanessa Foran; ‘Preposterous‘; Dan BoyleMarc ‘Prince of Pot’ Emery, Niall Neligan and Vera Twomey, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

Vera took us through her fight to obtain a licence for cannabis oil for her daughter Ava, Canada-born Marc eloquently recalled his own 30-year campaign (five of them in prison) while Niall, from the law department at DIT, explained the business behind the global ‘Green Rush’.

A rousing, Richie Sheehy (with Johnny at an undisclosed location; both possibly pickled on ‘jazz cigarettes’) closed the evening with his aged, yet timely, ‘The Cannabis Tree’.
