Our plan is fair and realistic. Stage One is modelled on the experience of the ACT where cannabis has been legal since 2020 with positive social and economic outcomes. Our plan recognises the need to approach the issue of cannabis regulation from a public health perspective keeping the needs of patients and consumers as a priority.

Home Grow & Possession

STAGE ONE: Legal Regulation of Cannabis (Personal Adult Use) Bill

  • Legal to possess up to 50 grams 
  • Legal to securely grow up to six plants at home – indoors or outside
  • Legal access to seeds
  • Social sharing (gifting) will be legal – up to 50 grams 
  • Carers will be allowed to grow for the person they care for
  • Storage of cannabis to be inaccessible to minors
  • No consumption in built-up areas or around children

STAGE TWO: Legal Regulation of Cannabis (Social Clubs) Bill

  • Consumers can assign their home-grow rights to cannabis social club
  • Clubs to be non-profit and limited to 99 members
  • Licenses will regulate production, safety, transport, storage and rules surrounding distribution to registered members
  • All forms of advertising prohibited
  • Cannabis to be provided to members in non-transparent, child-proof containers
