Yes We Cannabis
One in three Australians have tried cannabis at least once. It is high time that our laws caught up with the reality of our community! We need a way forward, with a legal market, and protections in place for cannabis consumers.
Ending the war on cannabis is a win-win. We take away the business model of organised crime and we help people, often vulnerable, with a disability, or living with chronic pain, to enjoy a better quality of life. We also utilise a new economic resource. Our climate here in South Australia allows us to make world-class wine and is (already) ideal for growing world-class weed. Our state could easily become the home of fine food, wine, and weed grown in a clean green environment.
Please join The Greens own David Shoebridge and Tammy Franks as they chat all things Yes We Cannabis and their respective campaigns to legalise cannabis for adult use. We are excited to be working with the SA Young Greens for this event, with questions submitted by members and their own Sian Davies as MC.
