"Governments around the world are realizing that prohibition of cannabis causes more harm than it prevents", Greens party leader Richard di Natale said in a speech Monday, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The Greens political party in Australia wants to completely legalize recreational marijuana.

Adults would be allowed to grow up to six cannabis plants for personal use.

During an interview last month, Sharon Ali said she was hopeful the change to allow for flower would move ahead.

Recently, several states in the USA have legalised recreational marijuana - in California this has amounted to a billion dollar industry.

It would be legal for adults to purchase and use the drug through a "properly regulated market for production and supply", under the party's plan.

"Former Australian Federal Police (AFP) commissioner Mick Palmer has come out in support of the Greens" cannabis initiative. "I know there are hundreds of people suffering in Ireland who could potentially benefit from medicinal cannabis".

The advisory board also added new conditions that can be treated with medical marijuana, including cancer remission therapy and neurodegenerative and spastic movement disorders. AMA Vice President Tony Bartone told the Sydney Morning Herald that his association has "considerable concerns about the risk for the young brain and the possibility of bringing on psychosis, especially in the younger age group". "The courts are clogged with people [on drugs charges]", Bartone said. People in industries "known to perform routine drug testing on employees" - i.e., health care and social assistance, or mining, oil and gas - posted lower prevalences of 7.4% and 5.2%, respectively. The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission reports that over 75,000 people are arrested every year for cannabis-related crimes.

"Nearly 7 million Australians choose to use cannabis", he said.

Levine also accepted the board's recommendation to allow medical marijuana as a treatment for opioid abuse and agreed to expand the list of qualifying medical conditions from 17 to 21.

The party is confident that now is the right time for change on cannabis in Ireland.

THE GREEN PARTY has introduced a new drug strategy policy which calls for the decriminalisation of cannabis, claiming that current laws make "criminals out of decent people".

Mr Moran added: 'It's no longer that unusual or "out there" to support the legislation of cannabis.
