Governments worldwide are slowly realising the unpopularity of busting sick people and so are trying to write legislation to accommodate this. Corporations and drug companies are also poised in the wings counting their prospective profits.

How to Access Legal Medical Cannabis in Australia
The Hemp Embassy has been operational for almost 30 years, and we educate on how cannabis may assist various medical conditions, but we are not medical professionals. Cannabis is a safe herbal product which is often used alongside other therapies. However, we recommend that you consult your doctor in regard to using cannabis. It is […]

In the minds of many Australians, Nimbin is the epicentre of all things pot. Last weekend, the NSW town held the 27th annual MardiGrass, which is a festival calling for cannabis law reform. And with the recent global shift in attitude, this aim seems much more tangible than it initially did back in ’93.
This is not the first time the authorities have cracked down on Nimbin’s cannabis culture. In 2014, the 9/11 raids were carried out, which involved officers and their drug detection dogs descending upon the Oasis Café and the Perceptio Bookshop.
“The raid was clearly to put a bit of a mark on the protest,” Balderstone told Sydney Criminal Lawyers. “There was a lot of police over the weekend. The Public Order and Riot Squad was here. At night, there were virtually no cars on the roads, just those big public order cars driving around.”
While on 3 May, in Canberra, politicians of all persuasions met to discuss the details of a piece of legislation designed to legalise the recreational use and personal possession of cannabis in the nation’s capital. It’s a bill that has a very strong chance of being passed sometime this year.
And just to get it straight, the word is the authorities didn’t actually copy the records of 2,000 medicinal cannabis patients, and if the street value of what was seized was really $93,000 then that was some very pricey leaf officers got their hands on.
