Cannabis Policy -NSW Greens – The Cannabis in Australia December 2022 Report says policing cannabis use is costing close to $2 billion dollars a year. And for over 13 years now, ninety-percent of these charges relate to personal use. So like US and Canada, is it time to decriminalise cannabis use in Australia? Their experience led to protecting consumers from criminal suppliers. It also meant law enforcers can focus on real crimes. Razors Edge followed The Greens cannabis use policy launched in 2022, in a forum titled “A Joint Effort.”
