Why did we choose the Hummingbird as a symbol of medicinal cannabis awareness?
Our hummingbird logo is a symbol of the truth which was chosen by Dan Haslam in 2014. Dan was a terminally ill young patient, who decided to fight for the right to legally access the medicine that gave him quality of life in his final year. His campaign was as much a fight for others as it was for himself.
Dan found a beautiful image of a hummingbird hovering over a cannabis flower that had been taken by a disabled patient in the US, Jeff Scheetz. Jeff gave Dan permission to use his photograph and that image inspired the patient-led movement to have medicinal cannabis legalised in Australia. It is therefore the image we continue to use to carry on our struggle for those still suffering.
