I'll just quote the website since it sums up what this is all about:
Link to the article:
A link to the discussion paper:
Of interest is the appendix of the paper, which states their recommendations. One of the recommendations states:
Encourage experimentation by governments with models of legal regulation of drugs
Is Australia finally going to get sensible about their stance on illicit substances?
so letting us smoke cannabis but we are not allowed to play R rating games....
I'd like to think things will change but....
Nothing will change
Nothing will change
On the contrary, I'm sure many hundreds of thousands of $'s will be spent to change nothing.
I'm all for it, having returned from Amsterdam recently where Pot is legal nobody abuses the drug I actually felt safer in Amsterdam on a Saturday night than in Surfers Paradise.
If you have a spare 2hrs the google+ debate was quite interesting.
The guys arguing against decriminalization actually had a few good points.
2 hilarious highlights, the US general. Goddam that guy could be a movie character and the tiff between Russel Brandt and the Sun reporter.
I'm all for it, having returned from Amsterdam recently where Pot is legalActually it is illegal, it's just tolerated.
I'm all for it, having returned from Amsterdam recently where Pot is legalits "tolerated" down at Nimbin too.
The group recommended a high level exploratory roundtable on the topic “What are the likely costs and benefits of a change in Australia’ s current policy on illicit drugs?”.
this is a waste of tax payer money. no matter what they come up with they will not change the laws. if they do they will lose the christian and familial votes..
I don't really think it needs debating/re-thinking.
As Dennis Leary said, the answer is not less drugs, it's more drugs.
be good if they would legalize it :/. at least then people could go into a shop and know what they buying etc, Usually people who OD are younger, because they don't know how to use it. But honestly, like what has already been stated by all of you... nothing will come of it : (
@ MosFx; mate the people in Surfers are not on weed.. it's the more chemical based substances that they are on. You can't effectively compare the two - Amsterdam with pot and Surfers with E/Speed/Ice etc.
what f*****g ever, just leave us poor pot smokers alone.
Xaltd, I think you're missing his point. He's talking about general feeling of safeness in a foreign city compared to here. I have friends that grew up in south Africa that say they'd feel safer out drinking in SA then the valley here.
Yeah cause in the valley no one knows what the hell they are taking, and what it will do to their mind/body. Would rather weed be legal and party drugs kept illegal. Maybe the government is realising how much more effective it would be to sell it themselves with taxes and being able to monitor/restrict how much someone can get.
