Legal cannabis plants increase use

Governments that agree to allow people to grow their own cannabis plants can expect an explosion of cannabis use.

The Queensland Justice Commissions' 1994 report disclosed that when South Australia allowed legal cannabis plants, between 1985 and 1993, 14 to 19 year olds increased their usage by 50% and 20 to 39 year olds increased their usage by 32%.

The Victorian Police Association disclosed one cannabis plant yields five crops a year of 500 grams per crop totalling 2500 grams.

The Woodward Royal Commission disclosed that a three month old cannabis plant will produce at least 500 grams of harvestable leaf or a crop of 2000 grams a year.

Just 25 grams of marijuana produces 86 joints with 3% of THC, so one plant can produce up to 8600 marijuana joints every year (Marijuana An Australian Crisis).

DRUG ADVISORY COUNCIL COMMENTS-

Cannabis use is very dangerous and leads to more mental illness, cancer, suicides, schizophrenia, psychosis, reduced immunity, genetic abnormalities and accidents.

Governments have a duty to REDUCE cannabis use.

Cannabis users need help to rehabilitate themselves and break out of the drug culture into a drug free lifestyle.
