  • Legalise It! - Rally Against Cannabis Prohibition

    Speakers Corner, Parliament House

    There is no basis for cannabis to be listed among the schedule of prohibited poisons. It's non toxic and demonstrably safer than either tobacco or alcohol, both of which are legal for adults to consume. We are calling on Australia's parliaments to bring about the necessary legislative changes needed to legalise cannabis for all recreational, medicinal, agricultural, culinary and industrial applications. Join the Pirate Party, the Greens, the Liberal Democrats and more as we unite to rally around this senseless prohibition! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/288732508515367/ We're going to meet up at Irish Murphy's afterwards, perhaps around 5pm depending on the rally, to chat and have a beer
