Cannabis in Canberra

I am proposing a law to legalise the personal use and possesion of small amounts of cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory for adults.

This would allow for the personal use and carry of cannabis up to a limit of 50 grams and it would also allow individuals to cultivate up to four cannabis plants (excluding artificial cultivation).

Penalties will remain for: Possession of over 50 grams of cannabis, the cultivation of more than four plants, artificial cultivation, all use by minors, driving under the influence of drugs and selling cannabis.
