G’Day Mate! As the acceptance of medical marijuana sweeps across the US, it appears that an Australia Senate committee is working hard at making medical marijuana illegal in the Land Down Under.
Despite the fact two-thirds of Australians support the idea of medicinal cannabis, the Australian Health Department has voiced its strong opposition to the idea of legalizing medical marijuana – fearful of creating unwelcome issues with the existing international drug treaties. As the Australian Health Department cites the “complexity and uncertainty” of the proposed program, the country’s politicians are reportedly working feverishly behind the scenes to pass legislation before the end of this year. Potentially legalizing medical marijuana nationwide.
The Senate committee, which represents a broad coalition of the country’s conservatives and liberals alike, are on a mission to cultivate the Regulator of Medicinal Cannabis Bill.
