Fed govt rejects call to legalise cannabis

Greens want to legalise cannabis for adult use

In Australia, the United States, and all over the world, the war on drugs has caused more than its fair share of harm, and it seems that finally, things are changing.

Greens leader Richard Di Natale has called to completely end the prohibition of marijuana use in Australia, describing it as an "unmitigated disaster".

In Canada, legislation to legalise cannabis is set to begin on July 1 this year - the Canadian law would allow up to 30g of cannabis possession for personal use.

"It's no longer all that unusual or "out there" to support the legalisation of cannabis", Moran went on to say. "It's really a testament to my incredible team that has rallied together and worked tirelessly to develop a one-of-a-kind cannabis oil product with such positive attributes".

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan toldTheJournal.ie that the creation of a coffee-shop culture in Ireland might prompt cannabis-takers to use the drug in a regulated environment.

Up to six plants could be grown for personal use.

The party has also called for the Misuse of Drugs act to be amended, individuals to be permitted to grow up to two cannabis plants in their home for personal use, and for access to cannabis-based medicines that can be used under a supervised system similar to that now in Germany.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Mr Hunt said the Greens' cannabis policy would mean it was "open slather for a highly unsafe and addictive drug" which he said was also a "gateway to even more risky drugs".

"Banning cannabis hasn't reduced its use or availability, yet it has distracted police from following up more serious crimes, harmed a lot of young people and helped make some criminals rich", Dr Wodak said.

However, the negative health impact of the drug have been described as minimal in the world's most comprehensive study into marijuana which was released a year ago by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

"The Greens' plan to legalise cannabis for adult use is a major step forward for drug law reform in Australia". Our plan to create a legal market for cannabis production and sale will reduce the risks, bust the business model of criminal dealers and syndicates and protect young people from unfair criminal prosecutions.

'In a poll previous year, 55 per cent of Australians said they believe cannabis should be taxed and regulated like alcohol or tobacco'. "This is an important and necessary reform supported by the majority of Australians".

He expects the plan to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, helping fund treatment, education and other harm-reduction programs.
