Cannot stand

Julia Gillard called the election four days before our registration could be finalised, and she did not delay the issuing of writs, so we cannot stand in the current election. Unusually, there are a couple of parties that do have policies of interest concerning cannabis. Labor well and truly backed away from any sort of drug law reform years ago. The Greens no longer have a policy on the subject. Whether you agree with the other policies of the two parties below or not, they are the only parties we know of that do have policies on drug law reform.

Ultimately you must cast your vote where you feel it best serves your interests. My personal view at my age is that the choice is between bad and worse, and that my preferences will end up with the bad and worse, rather than a minor party, even though I wish it were otherwise.

It is a difficult choice for voters this election.
