In an effort to ease their granddaughter’s pain, Barry and Joy Lambert donate a staggering $34 million to Sydney University for research into the medical use of cannabis.

Sydney University scientists will be given more than $30 million to research the medical applications of cannabis, the largest research donation in the university’s history.
