Rejected petition Remove cannabis and cannabis products from the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Change policy to bring an immediate halt to the raiding of the private property and the arrest and prosecution of citizens for the possession, cultivation and supply of cannabis until and after cannabis is removed from the Misuse of Drugs Act.

More details

The application of the Misuse of Drugs Act against people for victimless cannabis activities is contrary to common justice and Human Rights Laws. There should be commercial outlets where adults can safely purchase, consume and socially share cannabis with consumer protection, hygiene, quality control and tax on profits. See more:
