The Greens party is the first with seats in Australia's parliament to call for full marijuana legalization.

'When marijuana is legalized and society acknowledges that the drug can be enjoyed safely... it undercuts the stigma of danger that is so attractive to teenagers desperate to prove themselves to their peers.

"As someone who was a drug and alcohol doctor, I've seen how damaging the tough on drugs approach is to people", the Greens leader told Channel Ten.

Cannabis is being used as a "medical treatment" in some circumstances, while others smoke it for recreational purposes the same way some people "like a glass of wine in the evening", meaning it is time the drug was decriminalised. Shultz said vaporizing the leaf or flower form may benefit patients more effectively than simply taking the drug via a pill. The risk of graduating to ice or to heroin from extended marijuana use is real and documented, ' he told reporters on Tuesday.

He further commented that he didn't care about the possible tax revenue, and didn't want to put the mental health of Australians at risk.

Green Relief Inc., with production facilities in Flamborough, Ontario, has received its license to sell cannabis oil, marking a pivotal step in the company's growth.

But Senator Di Natale argues governments around the world are realising that prohibition of cannabis causes more harm than it prevents.

A national agency would be established to issue those licences and oversee regulations.

And people would be allowed to grow up to six plants at home for their own personal use.

Alex Wodak, president of the Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation, welcomed the announcement.

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan toldTheJournal.ie that the creation of a coffee-shop culture in Ireland might prompt cannabis-takers to use the drug in a regulated environment.

He said the Greens had rehashed an existing policy, which was the equivalent of "political click-bait". Should cannabis be legalised? The country's medical marijuana program has been growing very slowly, and the Labor party has accused the government of blocking cannabis imports and otherwise delaying the program's progress.

"This is a substance that has the potential for significant health issues that have significant harm and we need to ensure that everyone is aware of those consequences", Dr Tony Bartone from the Australian Medical Association said.
