Olivia Newton-John will campaign for Australia to allow the use of medicinal cannabis to manage pain for cancer patients.
"I will do what I can to encourage it. It's an important part of treatment, and it should be available," the singer told News Corp Australia.
Newton-John, who will be in Melbourne this week for a gala dinner for her wellness and research centre, said the drug - which is legal in her home of California - had helped her during her second fight against cancer.
