Cannabis has been legalised in many countries across the world. However, there are still those who argue that legalisation will lead to social breakdown. In places such as Canada and Colorado there has been an increase in employment and a decrease in crime as cannabis businesses require staff and are putting the black market out of business.
The Liberal Democrats have supported the legalisation of cannabis since the party formed in 2001. In 2018, Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm introduced a bill into the Senate which would see Commonwealth restrictions over industrial, medicinal and recreational cannabis removed. In November, the NSW branch of the Liberal Democrats submitted a petition to state parliament in an attempt to legalise cannabis.
However, there is a long road to travel until cannabis is legalised and we need your support to do it.Share on Facebook Share on Twitter
