BUYING WEED IN AUSTRALIA

Cannabis is yet to be totally legalized in Australia. It can be used for Medical purposes but not recreational use. That’s a loss to Western Australia (WA) and a legislative situation which does not address WA’s needs.

Statistics reveal that Western Australians have the highest Cannabis usage reports in the country, according to a 2010 study.Given the negative effects of Cannabis consumption, especially in young people WA’s numbers represents some concern for that area.

Cannabis is currently legal when used for medical purposes in Australia.

Can you buy cannabis in Perth?

The answer to this question depends on what you want to use the Cannabis for. Since the drug has been legalized (for medical uses) at the National level, states like West Australia.

Is Cannabis Legal in Perth?

According to the survey referenced above, 27.6% of the West Australian adult population admitted to having used the drug in the previous 12 months. All of those bought it illegally.

In addition to legalizing marijuana for Medical use, Perth also operated a decriminalization model for the drug in its region. This allowed those who were caught possessing or growing certain amounts of the drug to be let go with just a slap on the wrist – in form of a civil penalty – usually a small fine. Perth’s rules around being caught with Cannabis are far less stringent than those suffered by the inhabitants of other states, New South Wales in particular which has far stricter rules for those caught in possession.

Unfortunately for those interested in buying Cannabis in Perth, the decriminalization scheme was scrapped in 2011. Now, anyone caught with up to 10 grams of the substance (or a used smoking apparatus – known to the Police as ‘paraphernalia’ ) are now subject to a cannabis intervention. (Training and education, rather than a fine and potential jail time).
