    Richard DiNatale doesn’t rub everyone the right way, but he gets why the TGA is problematic: https://www.change.org/p/decriminalise-the-use-of-medicinal-cannabis-for-people-with-terminal-cancer-like-my-son/responses/42203

    Meet up: Melbourne

    I’d rather the 2nd or 9th than the 16th (and imagine that 26th is not enough notice for everyone).

    I hesitate to call this ‘progress’, but our probable future Health Minister has finally had something to say about medical Cannabis: https://www.change.org/p/decriminalise-the-use-of-medicinal-cannabis-for-people-with-terminal-cancer-like-my-son/responses/42198 Deeply centrist, and possibly will be derailed by the TGA’s recalcitrance and uncooperative Senators. Nice to see it on the agenda though.

    JILUNGIN - Terminalia canescens

    Must follow up on this (and so many other things).
  6. Really awesome day. Can't wait to do it again some time.

    Denver decriminalises psilocybin mushrooms

    It has begun!
  8. Got my ticket (finally)! Going to be an awesome day; looking forward to seeing everyone again.
  9. Thanks for clearing that up @Insequent. Yeah, I’d love for this to lead to some convictions being overturned.
  10. AFAIK cannabis suppositories are best for some medical rather than recreational purposes (maybe) as the reports seem to be that they don’t produce much of a high. I haven’t read up on the actual real research on this, so I can’t say for sure. If there is an absorption/availability issue, I’m willing to bet that ppl here could solve the problem though. Bypassing the test by packing your THC gummies in a gel-cap though? This seems pretty straightforward, albeit a little less fun than taking the back road.
  11. When questioned in general terms about the effectiveness of the police’s oral testing method in detecting different types of cannabis consumption, Dr Perl said: ‘if it is ingested it will disappear out of the oral fluid very rapidly, or if it is ingested in a capsule form it will not even be detected [at all]’. There is growing disquiet about the NSW drug driving testing regime. (file pic) The magistrate, David Heilpern said this evidence had ‘obvious implications for the efficacy of the state’s drug driving regime’. ‘The uncontradicted evidence of Dr Perl is unequivocally that if you take THC orally by capsule or by suppository then it is not possible to have a level of THC’ https://www.echo.net.au/2019/04/roadside-drug-testing-flaws-exposed-local-court-case/
  12. Well, @etherealdrifter keeps telling me I need more cacti...

    @Ethnoob, short of a total collapse of the state and a near-apocalyptic interregnum there are never going to be “no laws on the books” about this (certainly not in our lifetimes). I say we call it a day on this discussion and agree to disagree (or at least move the discussion to another thread).

    I don't know if you have spent much time talking to people who work for the federal government in the departments responsible for regulating opium production here, but that's kind of where we are already at. One of the reasons the federal government is stuck is because it doesn't want to be responsible for having our opium quota smashed in retaliation for de-scheduling(or so Iv'e heard at least one official say). Slow down and read the story: the greens specifically include grow your own in their plan. See, the thing with keeping it illegal is that it doesn't work for everyone, even if it works for you. There are plenty of good people whose careers could be destroyed by even a single drug conviction. Could things be worse than the current situation? Maybe. I just don't see how maintaining the current situation is anything other than letting them win. You think your kind of talk scares the shit out of prohibitionists? I can tell you now, it doesn't - it gives them a way to keep communities divided against each other though. If you have an actual achievable plan for me to not risk jail or my career for growing a bit of weed and/or sparking up a joint that doesn't involve any compromise, then I'm all ears. As far as I'm concerned, if I can grow a bit at home, buy some quality product at a decent price when I want to, and maybe even run a business growing or selling (even if there is a bit of paperwork and restriction on advertising), then that is pretty good. If they want me to pay a bit of tax to pay school teachers and build hospitals, then I'm OK with that too.

    In NSW the greens have said they will push for legalisation after the next election via a private members bill https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/greens-nsw-plan-to-legalise-regulate-and-licence-cannabis/news-story/e862e0a6598b12e4e36fec4688a2e42b In Victoria, Reason MLC Fiona Patten is calling for a select comittee to advise parliament on legal/regulatory frameworks needed to start sale of cannabis by 2021. https://mobile.twitter.com/FionaPattenMLC/status/1103095425010024448 (personally I’d trust Fiona on this more than the NSW greens, but good on them for trying)
