Petition the State Government to change the extreme marijuana laws in Western Australia…

This petition had 20 supporters


While alcohol and tobacco are sold within a kilometre of every home in the state and alcohol is advertised to my children, Marijuana is still extremely outlawed… While Alcohol and Tobacco have massive death tolls, there is no death toll for Marijuana. The social consequences of Marijuana are minimal in comparison, proven in many places worldwide…

While other minority groups, from alcohol drinkers and tobacco smokers to Gay lobbyists, have their rights met. Marijuana smokers are still raided, arrested, charged, sometimes strip searched, dragged before the courts and given a criminal record to make it harder to get a job…When will our rights be met also?

If the Government took control of Marijuana and turned it into an industry that creates revenue, it would create Western Australian jobs and small businesses and it would take a huge chunk out of the bikies black market.

If the Government were to copy the Amsterdam model, it would give weed smokers their rights like everyone else already has and we wouldn’t need to deal with those in the black market. Last time I was in Amsterdam, it wasn’t the weed smokers that were visible but rather the drinkers on almost every corner. Weed smokers are invisible in comparison…

At the very least, this new government needs to seriously consider decriminalising Marijuana if they can’t bring themselves to do away with these gross double standards of hypocrisy by legalising marijuana and taking control of it so weed smokers have there rights also, in a society that boasts equal rights…

This Petition has nothing to do with medical Marijuana and everything to do with Equal Rights…This is about the right to use Marijuana recreationally…

Please consider our petition that we have been petitioning for since I was born, in the 60’s…It’s time to give us our rights also, like everyone else already has…
