New Zealand goes to the polls on October 17 to vote on cannabis legislation, which makes me wonder when, if ever, Australia will get to have a say in the matter. Supposing there was a similar referendum in Australia, how would you vote and what would be your reasons?

Sports drug agencies WADA and ASADA both consider cannabis to be "performance ENHANCING", and AFL star Willie Rioli is currently banned for tampering with his urine sample, AND then having cannabis metabolites found in his secondary urine test.
At the very same time time, Police , courts, and governments list cannabis as performance DECREASING, and you can lose your drivers licence and get a criminal record if metabolites are found in your system.
Schrodingers buds.

You would think they could have some compassion and legalise it to help people get through the pandemic.
Remember the "MR Whippy '' ice cream vans and the music the van would play.
Well you could set up ''MR Hippy'' vans that visit your suburb each week blaring out Iron Butterflys ''Ina gada da vida''

Just goes to show that, despite all the woke rhetoric, the Victorian ALP are still reactionary conservatives. Right wing scumbags. The worst bit is that the criminalisation of pot is basically class war, always has been. Curious to see how much the illegality of yarndi contributes to incarceration rates for indigenous Australians. As long as Dan has the backing of the church it’s all good!

it's rather ironic , that here in Vicco , you can get a medical marijuana script which allows you to buy pot at the local pharmacy at $35 a gram......10g's for $350......

the Andrews Govt has followed the twisted advice of the police......and ignored the advice of all the experts....then again what would you expect from Politicians?

Yeh brutus,
It's blatant hypocrisy, given that we're following the advice of experts on the pandemic and any number of other public health issues.
Probably already posted but...

Its interesting how Govt's become the drug dealers to get a swag of taxes. First tobacco and now weed. So stupid it's laughable and downright embarrassing. The Gov. become the crime gang regulating one of God's plants again.There are places in Australia where little opium poppy groves grow wild. Just pretty flowers to most. The police go every year and cut them all down for goodness sakes. Plants should be left to people to choose what to do and there should be no crime attached to a natural thing like that....The only crime should be in cashing in on anothers addiction so the Gov. should probably lock themselves up.
