WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
We asked the government for medicinal cannabis.
They give us pharmaceutical cannabis.
We asked for amnesty for users and their providers while they sort out their framework and regulations. They cracked down and busted several of our key compassionate providers and increased the penalties for illegal dispensing We asked if our kids can have their medicine in hospitals and schools..
They refuse to allow it and report parents to DoCs and prosecute parents of sick and dying children. We asked for ease of access to affordable medicine
They give us a bureaucratic nightmare that makes impossible financial demands on those who can least a ford it but need it the most; and lengthy delays in the dispensing and importing process.
We ask our doctors for prescription under their new regulations They refuse to write them - no skills, no knowledge, too much paperwork they cry
All of our pleas for access have fallen on deaf ears. Enough is enough!
We KNOW and they KNOW that cannabis is safe! It is time they put #patientsbeforeprofits #peoplebeforeprofits and #stoptheraids on our providers. #compassionisnotacrime and we want the laws to reflect the collective opinion of the majority of Australians. This cruel raid on Jenny Hallam has been the catalyst.
I URGE you to be a part of this proposed show of people power by joining us in Canberra on 7th Feb to stand united - no matter what your reason for using cannabis may be - to send a message to the govt that its time to listen to the people and #changethelaw
We have asked politely and we are finished with begging. We want cannabis FULLY LEGALISED FOR ALL ITS USES ... and until that request is met #wewilldefy in bigger numbers
We have declared WAR on the WAR on Cannabis and only by standing together will we WIN the WAR.
Pharmaceutical cannabis is not cannabis medicine .. and the only way we can get our hands on the real thing is to push for FULL LEGALISATION .. and we have to make this the ultimate goal because this is the ONLY way we will get amnesty for patients; freedom for growers to grow; providers to make medicine and give personal users a safer social alternative - all without the threat of prosecution for victimless crime.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR LARGE NUMBERS FOR THIS EVENT .. AT LEAST AS MANY OF US AS THERE IS OF THEM .. I know there is a lot of "snobbery" in the movement that divides supporters for medical use and those who use it socially. THE ONLY WAY we will all get what we want is to put our differences aside and GO FOR BROKE .. UNITED IN OUR PUSH ..
