FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN 2001

OUTCOMES - Cannabis: Suggestions for Reform
  • More community involvement in decision making around local issues concerning drug use
  • Abolish the offence of using cannabis
  • Decriminalise possession of small quantities of cannabis
  • Decriminalise personal cultivation of cannabis
  • Legalise possession of cannabis for genuine medical reasons
  • Address issues of public consumption of cannabis through community policing (eg "drug free zones")
  • Provide more funds for treatment services

    This would result in:

  • bringing down the black market price of cannabis to less than heroin
  • less crime and less police and court time wasted
  • cannabis users being more likely to discuss their use with doctors
  • less tobacco addictions
  • the community having greater influence over appropriate behaviour
  • police having more discretion in dealing with individuals
  • less rejection and alienation of young people
