In the last few years, community views on cannabis have fundamentally changed.
Doctors around Australia are now able to prescribe medicinal cannabis to treat a variety of health conditions. However, non-prescribed cannabis use remains illegal throughout Australia.
We do not believe cannabis is a panacea and we do not ignore its risks. However, when it comes to cannabis laws, Australia is long overdue for reform. The data show that our current prohibition approach is not just failing, it is causing real harm.
We believe the best way forward is a strictly regulated legal market that prioritises safety and health outcomes.
