We got the numbers! We got the numbers! We got the numbers!
Voters at the upcoming Federal Election can now cast a vote for a better shade of green. Today is the day the Australian Electoral Commission said it would advertise the pending registration of THE HEMP PARTY.
Except they didn’t. Not in the SMH anyway. Perhaps they got stoned and forgot? Tomorrow the whole weed world is watching!
THE HEMP PARTY will target both houses of the Federal Parliament at the next election.
Immediately following official confirmation of registration (anticipated within the next thirty days) a detailed Preselection Prospectus will be made available to all HEMP PARTY members. This document will invite application from any members who might be interested in running on THE HEMP PARTY ballot for any one of a series of lower-house nominated seats.
BALANCE & COMMON SENSE
During the coming campaign THE HEMP PARTY will reflect the commonsense view of most Australians – namely that the current prohibitions relating to marijuana are simply not working.
MARIJUANA PROHIBITION HAS FAILED
Marijuana prohibition (like alcohol prohibition before it) has failed. Marijuana remains widely available in Australia despite the current legal prohibitions. Yet any teenager in our country knows where they can buy cannabis and this hypocrisy often poisons their relationship with police (and the relationship of police with our youth). There are no quality standards protecting the honest consumer, grower, or trader in cannabis. Everyone involved faces possible criminal sanctions so the price remains grossly inflated, enriching criminals and organized crime, at everyone’s expense. In all these many ways marijuana prohibition has failed.
In the upcoming federal election THE HEMP PARTY will advocate for the re-legalisation of cannabis.
THE RE-LEGALISATION OF CANNABIS WILL:
protect young Australians from criminal influences,
save Australian taxpayers huge sums of money,
remove the single biggest contributor to police corruption,
assist in building better relationships between citizens and police,
allow medicinal cannabis users access to their therapeutic agent of choice,
provide Australian Governments with much needed taxation revenue,
stop children gaining easy access to cannabis, &
regulate a currently unregulated marketplace.
