Australia: Tough new laws on cannabis use
    #11225046 - 10/11/09 06:06 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

THE West Australian government is set to roll out some of the toughest cannabis laws in the country in a bid to reduce the number of users.

WA Premier Colin Barnett announced two new legislations relating to drug use at the Liberal Party's state conference.

The government plans to toughen its cannabis law by reducing the legal possession limit from 30g to 10g and banning the sale of all smoking implements and paraphernalia.

To be introduced this week, the new legislation will repeal the former Labor government's Cannabis Control Act, which allowed people to cultivate two plants for personal use.

Under the new laws anyone caught with small amounts of the drug will have to undergo counselling and not re-offend in three years to clear their criminal record.

Anyone caught selling illegal smoking implements to minors will face a $10,000 fine.

While admitting he had never tried the drug, the premier said health authorities were adamant "the cannabis of today is far more potent and far more lethal than the cannabis of the 1960s and 1970s.

"What I hope would happen is a reduction in the usage of cannabis and that we will be far more effective in helping people to stay away from drugs and rehabilitate if they have a drug problem," Mr Barnett said.

"Almost 80 per cent of admissions (to psychiatric hospitals) are somehow drug related."

Under the second new law WA police will be given unprecedented powers to frisk people for drugs and weapons.

The new search law, to be introduced before Christmas, would mean police would no longer be required to prove grounds of suspicion in court.

I feel ashamed, that's my home state.  Things had been going so well for the last five years and now these dracoinian regressions.

:frown:

Looks like a nice formula for a police state.

WA always was a police state, nothing really changed except there was a window of five years of sanity.

I don't live there anymore so it has no effect on me but it's still sad and a little embarrassing.

"far more lethal" is false.

Does that mean that you can have 10g legally ?

or its just decriminalized if you have under 10g

People who dont know shit, talk a lot of shit! Premier Colin Barnett obviously does not know what he is talking about but he is implementing all the laws..........Good work people, democracy gets raped by hipocracy again. That reminds me, be sure to own a gun or two when your own government is locking you up for smoking weed!

That isn't behind most of the US, sorry to say, they don't even have tickets for pot use here, though there is finally a push for it with the DAs office.

I have logged in this once so that I can set the "last seen" feature up.  let the faggots flow forth into OTD and have it.  Its funny how they all grew nuts after I left.  I'm not here, I'm not reading, but I urge you all to keep melting down over me.  I know, I hurt alot of people, and they deserved it.  epic win for me, epic fail for you. 

ythan, you rock dude.  i feel that my time at the shroomery was very positive and enjoyable, but this site is no longer for me. im not mad or upset or disappointed, i just want no part in a pg rated faggot festival.

2,703 kilometers (1,679 miles) across the border to Adelaide if you're coming from Perth. It only takes 3 solid days of driving. Piece of cake.
