Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Aussies say "Fix med pot and regulate cannabis".


Are we strange? Do we have different genes or something?

Aussies say, "Fix med pot and regulate cannabis, just bloody do it!".
Could it be simpler?
Alcohol and other Drugs Council of Australia September 2003

ADCA policy recommendations

ADCA endorses the findings of the working party and supports the recent announcement by the New South Wales Government to establish a trial of the medical use of cannabis.

ADCA calls on other governments to enact the legislative and policy changes required to facilitate the medical use of cannabis. Governments need to recognise the therapeutic value of this drug and support further research into the possible benefits of cannabis and cannabinoids as well as development of alternative mechanisms for delivering active ingredients such as THC into the body.


ADCA recommends that:
  1. Governments adequately resource cannabis misuse prevention and treatment programs and provide cannabis users with relevant, accurate and current information on the health and criminal justice impacts of cannabis use.
  2. Criminal sanctions be removed from the cultivation of a small number of cannabis plants, the use of the drug and the possession of small quantities for personal use.
  3. Governments support the development of a national cannabis policy which builds on the considerable policy debate and research effort to date and provides a consistent and evidence-based approach to regulation, education, treatment and medical use of cannabis.
  4. The federal government provide funding for research into the relationship between cannabis use and respiratory illnesses.
  5. Governments which have not already done so should recognise the therapeutic value of cannabis and implement the policy and legislative changes needed to establish a compassionate regime in this area.
