In 2015 QLD was the first state to have medical cannabis made legally available K9 with a prescription from any GP in any form including dried bud. Those law changes were done with the help of petitions such as this one to help show the Gov that the public wanted and needed the changes by the people who lobbied for those specific law changes. I'm not saying petitions made it happen but they definitely helped.
Unfortunately the other states didn't follow suit and a lot has changed since businesses and even the majority of cannabis activist groups lobbied for federal laws instead that have restricted access to just research and product development pretty much. But that doesn't change the fact QLD was first.
