1:15 Medicinal Cannabis Restrictions Relaxed

From today, approval to use all cannabis-based products for medicinal use, will no longer require ministerial sign-off. Instead, seriously ill patients seeking medicinal cannabis, will go to the Ministry of Health for ultimate sign-off. It's a small victory for medical marijuana campaigner, Rose Renton. Her son, Alex Renton, suffered a string of epileptic seizures that conventional medicine couldn't cure. Dunne approved a petition to the Government from Alex's family, to allow him to be treated with a medicinal cannabidiol oil, Elixinol. His seizures stopped and he regained consciousness shortly before his death in 2015.

3:10 How to Treat Back Pain

An Australian study has found that anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, have little impact on lower back and neck pain. But many patients are still advised to take the drugs, and suffer further health issues from the side effects. But what is the best way to treat pain? Associate Professor Manuela Ferreira is senior research fellow, Musculoskeletal Division, at Sydney Medical School.

3:35 BBC Witness

On the 20th of February 1991, the captive bull orca, Tilikum, drowned his trainer, Keltie Byrne at Sealand of the Pacific in British Columbia, Canada. It was the first recorded killing of a human by an orca whale.  19 years later - almost to the day - Tilikum killed another trainer, Dawn Brancheau. Rebecca Kesby has been speaking to Corinne Cowell, an eye witness to the first killing, and biologist Eric Walters, the whale trainer who warned the authorities 2 years before that keeping orcas in captivity could be fatal.
