Senator Di Natale pointed to a recent poll showing 55 per cent of Australians believed cannabis should be regulated and taxed like alcohol or tobacco.

The Green Party has called for cannabis to be decriminalised, arguing that current legislation has "made criminals out of decent people". But patients say that they face steep challenges trying to obtain the drug, including limited supply, uninformed doctors and high costs. "It's really a testament to my incredible team that has rallied together and worked tirelessly to develop a one-of-a-kind cannabis oil product with such positive attributes". Governments around the world are realising that prohibition of cannabis causes more harm than it prevents.

The party has also called for the Misuse of Drugs act to be amended, individuals to be permitted to grow up to two cannabis plants in their home for personal use, and for access to cannabis-based medicines that can be used under a supervised system similar to that now in Germany.

"If somebody is found with small amounts of cannabis for personal use, the primary response for me isn't a law enforcement response, it's a public response", says Professor Steve Allsop of the National Drug Research Institute at Curtin University.

The authorities after further investigations informed that Riess flew to Florida, befriended her twin and killed her. Investigators in Florida said Hutchinson was murdered by a woman who is now the subject of a nationwide manhunt.

Under the Greens' plan, adults would be able to grow up to six cannabis plants for personal use.

He expects the plan to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, helping fund treatment, education and other harm-reduction programs.

"It's time Australia joined them and legalised cannabis for adult use", he said.

Liberal Democrat David Leyonhjelm said his party had long-held the position of legalising marijuana, criticising the 80,000 cannabis-related arrests each year as a waste of police resources. The Australian Greens have promised this bill will be in parliament by the end of 2018. This philosophy stands at the centre of the Greens' argument.

'Banning cannabis hasn't reduced its use or availability yet it has distracted police from following up more serious crimes, harmed a lot of young people and helped make some criminals rich, ' Dr Wodak said.

Queensland's laws are the most flexible in the country, which grant patients of any age or suffering from a range of illnesses access to medicinal cannabis products.

In a significant escalation of Greens drug policy, Federal leader Richard Di Natale wants Australia to follow the lead of Spain, Uruguay and nine US States and decriminalise marijuana use for all adults.

But the Australian Medical Association has "significant reservations" about the proposal.
