LEGALISE CANNABIS QLD
Many people in Australia believe that Cannabis law reform is (or should be) a federal issue. The ‘People of Australia’ petitioned the Federal Government in 2018 for a plebiscite to be held at the 2019 Federal Election, to gather public opinion on the question of legalising Cannabis. It was signed by 13,000 people in just one month. Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt responded, stating clearly that:
“The (LNP) Government does not support legalising Cannabis for recreational use but notes that issues relating to prohibition legislation deregulation and decriminalisation of Cannabis are primarily the responsibilities of the states and territories”.
