Legalise, Decriminalise & Tax Cannabis

The government should immediately restructure the laws surrounding the use of Cannabis.

The proposal is as such:

1. Legalise (completely) the usage of cannabis for medicinal purposes for those who have a current medical condition i.e Multiple Sclerosis.

2. Legalise possesion of Cannabis under 1 ounce and set a level at which it becomes intent to supply i.e. 2 ounces. Anything above this level would be either charged as a class C or B drug.

3. Issue vendor licenses like alcahol and tobacco and have the vendor pay a fee.

4. Tax the cannabis in the same manner as tobacco is.

5. Issue personal licenses to individuals which allows the growing of 5 or 6  plants at a time for personal consumption only and charge an annual fee. (disabled or medically certified persons would be exempt from this fee.)
