Dear Ms Gibbs,

Freedom of Information Request FOI 16/030

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents relating to correspondence about the
legalisation of medical marijuana. I have taken your request to be for:

‘any correspondence between the Attorney-General and the Health Minister
regarding amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act 1967, specifically
amendments relating to legalising medical marijuana’

 

If you disagree with this interpretation of your request, please let me
know as soon as possible.

We received your request on 28 February 2016 and the 30 day statutory
period for processing your request commenced from the day after that date.
You should therefore expect a decision from us by 30 March 2016. The
period of 30 days may be extended if we need to consult third parties or
for other reasons. We will advise you if this happens.

It is the usual practice of the department to not disclose the names and
contact details of junior officers of the department and other government
agencies, where that personal information is contained in documents within
the scope of a request.  The names and contact details of senior officers
will generally be disclosed.  We will take it that you agree to the
removal of junior officers’ personal information unless you advise that
you would like us to consider releasing that information as part of the
documents you have requested.

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log
[1]http://www.ag.gov.au/RightsAndProtection...,
subject to certain exceptions. (For example, personal information will not
be published where this would be unreasonable.)

We will contact you using the email address you provided. Please advise if
you would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

If you have any questions, please contact Siobhan, FOI case manager by
telephone on (02) 6141 6666 or by email [2][email address].

Yours sincerely,
