For over half a century, governments have wasted resources on a harmful, futile war on drugs.
Prohibition has failed to stop people using cannabis, and landed thousands of innocent people in prison or stuck with a criminal record. It means we can’t regulate cannabis products for safety, or tax them to fund public services.
Support for legalisation is growing, but the major parties remain stuck in a “tough on drugs” mentality.
It’s time to try something new.
The Greens are calling on Governments across the country to legalise and regulate cannabis.
In Federal Parliament, Greens MP David Shoebridge has proposed a Bill that would legalise and regulate cannabis for adult use at a Commonwealth level, but there’s nothing stopping Queensland from taking action now.
Sign our petition here to make Queensland the first state to fully legalise cannabis and provide amnesty for past cannabis-related offences.
Please note this petition is being conducted in conjunction with the Greens’ campaign for legal cannabis. Your details will be shared with the Greens. You can opt out of communications from the Greens or Michael’s office at any time.
