The Pot Doctor

“When the law is unjust, resistance is mandatory”

For over 20 years Andrew Katelaris has researched the medicinal properties of cannabis. Despite being deregistered as a practitioner in 2006, Katelaris continues to prescribe, produce and distribute cannabis oil to a dozen families with children suffering from brain damaging and life threatening seizures. Incessant legal pressure has done nothing but fuel Andrew’s passion as he vows to fight “the draconian laws” and social paranoia surrounding this “life saving medicine.”
