Holly smokes! The Australian Greens party are going.. ahh, extra green, to legalise growing and smoking the wacky tobaccy AKA the sweet green AKA the holly herb AKA.. cannabis, by 2023.
Senator David Shoebridge has today made a statement that could change Aussie lives forever, confirming that it is constitutionally possible for the federal government to #legaliseit on a national level.
“At least 40% of Australians have used cannabis and any law that makes almost half of us criminals needs to go,” said David “Shoey” Shoebridge in a Greens media release. (Don’t think he’s ever been called that, but if he’s gunning to legalise doobies it just had to be said right?!)
“We’ve been told to wait for cannabis law reform for too long, even when it’s obvious that the majority of harm caused is by policing and the war on drugs, not the plant. People are looking for justice and legal cannabis delivers this. It’s plain wrong that young people are being dragged to court for what should be a personal choice about cannabis use.”
He is planning on making The Australian Green’s legalisation proposal public later in the year, watch this space people!
Now.. what would buying “legal weed” look like in your local shopping centre?? If we were to follow the likes of Canada weed would be distributed from a cannabis dispensary.
There are many benefits to buying weed from a cannabis dispensary. For starters, dispensaries offer a wide variety of strains to choose from, so you can find the perfect one for your needs. In addition, dispensaries are highly regulated, so you can be sure that the weed you’re buying is of high quality. Finally, dispensaries provide a safe and legal way to purchase weed, so you don’t have to worry about getting in trouble with the law. If you’re looking for a convenient and hassle-free way to buy weed, then a cannabis dispensary is the perfect option for you.
Up until now, drug legalisation and regulation in Aus has been left up to each individual state to make the controversial move. Of course, no state has wanted to jump put and be the first one to do so, probably in fear of looking like the “hippy state” even though the world is beginning to detach that stigmatisation with cannabis.
“We’ll be moving ahead on these laws to make it possible for a person to grow a few plants for personal use, or buy a joint or a brownie from a licensed seller.” Says David Shoebridge, “It’s possible, achievable and we’re super ready to get it done!”
