Legalise Cannabis Australia

The Legalise Cannabis Party, formerly The Hemp Party have formed or are in the process of forming Legalise Cannabis Parties in every state and territory of Australia.

The Legalise Cannabis Party are currently campaigning in every state for reform and common sense cannabis policy. Prohibition is enforced at the state level as are the laws governing policing and driving.

To start with, Legalising Cannabis would help to address the discrimination being experienced by those who are financially disadvantaged by their medical condition, which precludes them from obtaining expensive, imported, legal medical cannabis products and leaving many to face criminal charges.

The benefits of law reform far outweigh the need for Cannabis Prohibition, in my opinion.

Listed below are some of the benefits to ending the outdated Cannabis Prohibition.

Reduce harm The criminalisation of cannabis use disproportionately harms young people and indigenous people, leads to massive levels of violence and corruption, and fails to curb youth access.

Create jobs Legalising and regulating cannabis will bring one of the nation’s largest cash crops under the rule of law. This will create jobs and economic opportunities in the formal economy instead of the illicit market.

Save taxpayers money Scarce law enforcement resources will be better used to ensure public safety while reducing corrections and court costs. Governments would acquire significant new sources of revenue from regulating cannabis sales.

Promote consumer safety Cannabis product testing is becoming a standard requirement for legalised cannabis markets. This means consumers are better informed about the cannabis they use.
