  • ACT Legalises Pot for Personal Use

    In an astonishing move, the ACT have legalised the possession of up to 50 grams and growing up to two plants.

    Any bets on the which the last state or territory in Australia will be to legalise it? I know where I'd be placing my money...

      56 grams would have been better.

        The country is fucked.
        Pot and fireworks are legal in the ACT.
        Its a recipe for mass shootings at schools.

          It was decriminalised here for a while in 2003 for 25 grams and two plants (no hydro) but Colin Barnett's mob decided it would lead to harder drugs and associated crime and changed it so we now have no problems with drugs of addiction.

            Yes, I remember that. The subsequent re-criminalisation worked well...

              Although it might be legal to grow, doesn't mean that a work place could not insist on a clean drug result.

              Also this morning on the ABC, they were saying it might be legal in the ACT, but its still illegal under Australian law. Guess which country the ACT is in?

              But as you point out, the Politicians would be tried under ACT law, people on newstart would be tried under Australian law.

                Personally neither for it or against it but have known many friends who were heavy users to committe suicide due to depression while on it.

                  They banned fireworks there some years ago, so people can have a couple of cones now and commiserate.

                    Do you really believe that using marijuana made them commit suicide?

                          The relationship with cannabis use and development of psychosis is well established.

                              Si!

                              Personally I agree with limited legalisation. Growing and using is legal but prosecute sale or distribution.
