Green’s Leader, Senator Richard Di Natale wants to continue Cannabis prohibition. His party “do not support the legalisation of currently illegal drugs”.
Whoever decided the main weapon in the NSW war on ice is to be a trebling of roadside saliva testing may actually be encouraging its use.

In 2014, 128,000 Australian citizens will be deprived of a well-recognised medicine ‘scientifically proven’ to relive their pain. 128,000 is the number of cancer patients that the Cancer Council Australia has calculated to be affected by cancer in Australia by the end of this year.
There are a number ways of influencing parliaments in Australia to advance whatever your political agenda may be. You could try: bribing some politicians; demonstrating in the streets; constructing a lobby group; or registering a political party.
The HEMP Party totally opposes the proposal by Nick Xenophon to change the Above the Line Voting system to an ‘Optional Preferential’ method as currently used in the NSW Legislative Council elections.
