Greens want to legalise cannabis for adult use

17 April 2018

Up to six plants could be grown for personal use and strict penalties would be imposed on selling cannabis to minors or without a licence. This would be well above and beyond the current legislation around cannabis products, which more or less constitutes extremely limited medical use in certain states like New South Wales and Victoria. "We're pleased that aquaponics enables us to provide this and produce oils of exceptional quality for our patients".

The Australian Greens party has just announced a federal policy seeking to legalise the use of recreational cannabis in Australia.

"This is an exciting day, as it represents a significant milestone for our company but even more so for our patients", Bravo says.

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.

Dilkens says people need to know there are different rules in Canada and the United States on the use of marijuana, and people could be denied entry into the US for using marijuana, even for medicinal reasons.

All over the world, more and more drug-aware citizens are subscribing to the belief that marijuana use should be treated as a public health issue, rather than a criminal issue.

"The ridiculous Greens argument that we should give unrestricted access to drugs that are prohibited applies equally to ice and heroin, and should strike fear into the heart of every parent".

"Prohibition has failed. Using cannabis remains illegal, but this has not stopped Australians from using it".

It is positive, as 66 investors sold CSX shares while 324 reduced holdings. 97 funds opened positions while 215 raised stakes. Baird reiterated a " buy " rating and issued a $59.00 price objective on shares of CSX in a report on Tuesday, January 9th.

In its proposed policy, the party has requested that it no longer be classed as a criminal offence if a person over the age of 18 is in possession of less than five grams of cannabis.

"This is an appalling waste of Australian Federal Police and Australian Border Force resources to the tune of nearly $100 million a year", Senator Leyonhjelm said, citing Parliamentary Budget Office costings commissioned by his party.

Alex Wodak, president of the Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation, welcomed the announcement.

The Greens' leader Richard Di Natale will launch a new drug law reform to decriminalise cannabis.

He said a poll past year showed 55 per cent of Australians believed cannabis should be taxed and regulated like alcohol or tobacco.

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

Dr Di Natale said the push to legalise cannabis would change the conversation from criminal to health.

But the Australian Medical Association has "significant reservations" about the proposal.
