Australians are world renowned for the relaxed “she’ll be right attitude”. And, Australia is famous for its worldwide tourist marketing campaigns based on the Aussies’ love of beer, barbecues and thongs. It is hardly surprising they like a toke as well. Over the last decade, Australians have progressively changed their attitude to legalising cannabis use in Australia.
Aussies are relaxing their attitude to the legalisation of cannabis as recent research shows. Early in 2015, Roy Morgan Research released its latest research on Aussie’s attitudes to this hotly contested topic. They asked Aussies aged 14 upwards – “In your opinion should the smoking of marijuana be made legal – or remain illegal?” The results showed support for legalising marijuana rose to 31.8% in 2014 from 26.8% in 2004. Most support came from the 18 – 24 age group with 35.7% supporting its legalisation. Interestingly, those aged over 65 had a growth rate of almost 50% from 16.9% in 2004 to 25.5% most recently. This age group had the largest overall increase for legalisation of cannabis.
Aussie’s are world famous for their relaxed attitudes to most things, and smoking pot tends to be one of them though it is a criminal offence in most states. Decriminalisation for the possession of small amounts of pot still carries a civil penalty…

(SA) South Australian aged 65 woman was allegedly charged having in her possesion 1.15 KG of cannabis and thousands of dollars cash, about $6000.00 to be exact.
Her Berri home was raided on Friday November 20, 2015 and she was charged with drug trafficking.
I guess her pension couldn’t cover her lavish elderly lifestyle. Neighbors must be shocked that a grandma that should be baking grandchildren cookies was alegedly dealing cured cannabis. Maybe the marijuana cookies were already sold by the time the police arrived?…

The Victorian Law Reform Commision (VLRC) makes a state-based recommendation for the trial cultivation of Cannabis inside Australia.
Australia already has an opium poppy industry, and this new move could also regulate cannabis cultivation using the same rules.
There largest concern seems to be inhaling smoked cannabis and it’s health implications. They are more likely to distribute oils, vaporizer liquids and sprays, much like the do methadone, using specialists to prescribe THC and having a pharmacist fill your prescription.
We feel this is huge news for all the home growers out there. Growing from seed and taking care of plants is also very therapeutic, especially for those who live alone.
Sydney, Australia also receives $33 Million for medical cannabis research…

Australia has made it illegal to use CBD oil treatments, even when the legal steroid treatment doesn’t work and has terrible side effects, especially on young children battling lung cancer.
Families are purchasing supercharged silver haze cannabis seed strains online that are specially bred to produce the best THC/CBD combination for the best healing effects.
It was the only way to get the CBD Oil we needed to live. It’s so much effort, trying to hold a job when you’re caring for your critical condition children. Then you have to worry about the fuzz, growing cannabis to make medicine to save your children’s life. Both my children are dying, and the government took our CBD Oil away. We had no choice but to pack up our bags, sell our house and move to Vancouver, BC Canada for an unlimited supply of life saving medicine…
