Vera Twomey accepting her ‘People of the Year’ award for her struggle to obtain medicinal cannabis for her daughter, Ava.

Vera’s acceptance speech included criticism of Leo Varadkar [who was present] and his government’s policy in this area.
RTÉ, in their highlights clip (above), has chosen to edit this out. It was a magnificent speech and took a lot for Vera to speak out… Unbelievable censorship from the state broadcaster.
It's been a long hard road, but Vera has captured the attention of a nation and informed them of the real benefits of regulating cannabis for medicinal use. If it can improve the life of one vulnerable child, it can help many more. @veras1 @BrendanTKennedy @broadsheet_ie https://t.co/vSqdCgLq8t
