Over the last few years, medical cannabis laws in Australia have eased up quite a bit.
Growers of medicinal marijuana have seen licensing and permits reduce from say 6 – 8 licences and permits to just 1.
The more centralised approach has seen a substantial increase in cultivators of medical cannabis – which is great for the patients that need it.
Not only are the prices going down, but it promotes a healthier Australia.
Those who suffer from terminal illnesses such as cancer have seen their life expectancy increase from 4 to 23 months.
Dan Howard, originally a Canadian resident moved from his home grounds to Australia as he saw the potential of medical cannabis here down under.
Dan believes that Australia is headed towards the same path as Canada in terms of the legalisation of the plant.
There are many benefits to legalising cannabis here in Australia, not only for health, but economically as well.
If cannabis is legalised full on, the jobs and taxes that could be raised could only benefit Australians.
In 2021, the marijuana market for Australia was valued at USD 51.8 million. It is expected to increase by 30% from 2022 to 2030 as reported by Grand View Research.
One could only imagine the the positive potential of legalising the magical plant on a large scale for both recreational and medical purposes.
The thousands of Australian consumers using marijuana will be able to breathe a sigh of relief as they will not have to face possible legal trouble for using the plant to aid them in their battle to live longer or simply relax
The ACT is paving the way for what could potentially be a test run to see how easing the laws around cannabis could benefit the state.
Currently, residents in the Australian Capital Territory are allowed to grow 2 plants per person and 4 plants per household.
This could be a sign that Australia is testing the effects of cannabis legalisation in a smaller state and documenting the pros and cons before rolling it out nation wide.
We can only keep our fingers crossed and hope that the government sees the plant as not a dangerous drug, but a safe one.
We all know someone that has great stories about the health benefits of this miraculous plant – and the world needs to adhere to it.
Fully legalise marijuana in Australia, it’s worth it.
