Cannabis legalisation in Western Australia

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Stop treating us like criminals and let’s get real about cannabis. The war on drugs has failed. The reality, which current political parties continue to ignore, is that Australians choose to use cannabis. 35% of us have tried it or used it socially but, unfortunately, this choice could get you a criminal record just for having a small amount of weed in your possession.

This “tough on drugs” approach causes enormous harm. It drives people away from getting help when they need it and exposes them to a dangerous black market.

From Uruguay to Spain, New Zealand to the United States, countries all around the world are realising that prohibition causes more harm than it prevents, and are moving to develop a regulated legal market. It’s time we joined them. 

Science has shown time and time again the many potential uses for cannabis and it's health benefits. The positives from a strong regulated cannabis market far outweighs any negative impacts. The people of this state want cannabis legalised for adults and it's your duty as an elected representative of the people to carry out this request. I say again we are not criminals but you and WAPOL continue to treat us in this manner.
