Help End Marijuana Prohibition

HEMP Party Australia


Vote 1 HEMP to re-legalise and regulate personal, medical and industrial use.

HEMP has a plan to integrate the whole plant into our everyday lives for medicine, food security, the environment and social harmony.

Let’s Do Cannabis Better

  • Cannabis as medicine and therapy could reinvent the health system.

  • Complete protein and polyunsaturated fats are an essential part of our diet.

  • The hemp plant can address environmental concerns on CO2 levels and soil reparation

  • Currently we waste millions of tax-payer dollars trying to enforce prohibition.

  • A regulated market would redirect funding to education, health and harm reduction.


A brief description of Cannabis Legislation: Federal and State

❶ Cannabis is the number one plant


Better protein than beef from hemp seed edestine and albumin plus Omega-3, 6 & 9 Essential Fatty Acids.


Cleaner energy than crude oil from a renewable resource and Carbon sink.


Stronger textile than cotton, more productive than trees and biodegradable.


Safer effect than pharmaceuticals and less toxic as a prevention & cure for illness and disease.


Superior facial creams, body lotions, soaps, lip balm, shampoo and conditioner, massage oil with hemp seed oil are just some of many products.


Healthier choice than alcohol and can help overcome alcohol or drug dependency. Cannabis therapy reduces stress and relieves tension.

Registered Party

On 17 June 2010 the delegate determined that the party’s application had passed its initial consideration for registration and the application was advertised for public objection on 23 June 2010. The issue of writs on 19 July 2010 for the federal elections meant that no further action could be taken on this application until the final return of all outstanding writs on 17 September 2010.hemp-bob160

No objections to the registration were received. The delegate of the Australian Electoral Commission determined that the Marijuana (HEMP) Party should be registered under the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918.

State and Territory Branches

NSW electoral laws make it very tough for new, small political parties to get on the official register in NSW. The registration laws are the toughest and most restrictive in Australia. The HEMP Party is currently seeking official registration of individual State and Territory branches of the Party.

To apply for registration in NSW a political party must submit its application no less than 15 months out from the calling of an election, have 750 members who are also currently on the electoral roll in NSW plus pay an application fee of $2,000. Federal, Victorian and Queensland laws require 500 members to qualify for registration, less registration fees, and shorter time periods to apply for and attain official registration. Federal and State Branch application forms are listed on the JOIN page.

To highlight the hypocrisy

The United States has taken out a patent on the use of cannabis as a neuro-protectant, though they continue to keep the plant in Schedule One, reserved for drugs with the highest potential for abuse and no medicinal use. Groups of physicians and nurses including the American Medical Association have requested a review of this scheduling. Medical Marijuana is dispensed under state law in a growing number of states of the USA. Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants


Endocannabinoids are a group of lipid compounds (fat-like) that are produced by some invertebrates and all vertebrates including humans . Their classification is based on their biological activity, which is often similar to that of the main psychoactive phytocannabinoid (plant cannabinoid) delta-9 tetrahydrocanabinol (THC) found in the marijuana plant.

Australia lagging behind Cannabis legislation


Although industrial hemp is legally grown under licence in all states, we remain the only nation that prohibits the consumption of hemp seed for humans. Hemp seed oil is an extremely healthy food oil, as well as skin oil.

Hemp seed whole, hulled or crushed for oil are used in food products such as muesli bars, cakes, breads, biscuits, butter paste, non-dairy milk, tofu and cheese, ice cream, the essential and cold pressed oils are used in cosmetics (such as shampoo, soaps and moisturisers), as well as having therapeutic qualities similar to evening primrose oil, cod liver oil, flax-seed oil and soybean supplements.

The omega-6:omega-3 ratio of hemp seed is considered optimal for human nutrition. Because of hemp’s high seed yield, and the seeds high oil content, it has been used throughout the millennia in paints, varnishes, and as a lighting fuel.

Pending decision on hemp seed food in Australia:
The Food Standards Code has been amended to permit the sale of low THC hemp seed foods. However the changes will not come into effect until 12 November 2017. Until then the sale of low-THC hemp products is not permitted in Australia or New Zealand. The delay in the amendment taking effect gives jurisdictions time to amend respective legislation.
