An innovative online and street campaign run by SBS has revealed, somewhat unsurprisingly, Australians overwhelmingly want to smoke weed legally.
A network spokesman told BuzzFeed more than 65,000 people have voted on the eve of its special Insight program; with the #YesToPot campaign receiving nearly 90% support.
Part of the campaign has seen large billboards containing synthetic cannabis plants erected in Melbourne and Sydney, with passers-by encouraged to cast a vote.
When a vote is cast one of the cannabis plants gets gassed with weedkiller.
SBS Insight also interviewed those who voted and said #YesToPot.
However, Insight hopes to zero in on the issue of medical marijuana on Tuesday night's show.
It comes in the wake of a private letter which revealed Prime Minister Tony Abbott (pictured) endorses the use of medical cannabis and the New South Wales government has effectively decriminalized the practice.
The program will interview a mother who treats her daughter with cannabis oil to help cope with seizures and a former policeman and naval officer who uses it to minimise pain from a knee injury.
Several American states have already legalised the medical use of marijuana read the full list here.
