It's time the Australian government catch up to the rest of the world, For far to long many many medical and recreational users of cannabis have risked jail time, public judgement, segregation, forced rehabilitation & loss of employment just for simply medicating with a natural herbal medicine.
Science has and continues to prove cannabis benefits all users in many different ways from many different forms. The current medical cannabis program setup is near impossible to access and if approved costs just as much if not more than a monthly repayment on a $750,000 30 year mortgage.
We petition all leaders of the Australian government to review and update our laws legalising cannabis on all levels. No only will this knock out black market greedy dealers, it also eases pressure on our health system, frees up police, courts and rehabilitation centres allowing more access for those with addictions with harder drugs like ice.
It will allow medical users to obtain medical cannabis in all forms at 1/20th of the government's prices by a community with far more experience than any professional.
Stats have proven alcohol is the leading drug of addiction, domestic violence, car accidents and gate way to much harder drugs like cocaine and ice so it's time to recognise the dangers of something legal versus cannabis. No death has ever been recorded as a direct result of cannabis.
I call on our Australian community to support this petition.
