Do you think cannabis should be legalised in Australia?

The Liberal Democrats in the UK have pledged to fully legalise marijuana and make it a recognised and regulated industry. This seems like a sensible idea to me. Let’s face it, people are going to smoke cannabis whether it is legal or not. We have lost the war on drugs, so if you can’t beat them, legislate it. There are many advantages to legalising cannabis.

The Lib Dems predict they would be able to raise £1bn in taxes but that isn’t all. The sale of Mary Jane would start contributing to GDP instead of being considered part of the black market. Drug dealers would then also be able to be legally employed which would decrease the unemployment rate because anyone working in the underground economy is technically considered to be unemployed.

Currently there is no form of control on the sale of pot. There are no age checks, and no restrictions on quality or strength. ‘Skunk’ (very strong weed) is widespread and the only ID you need to buy it is a £20 note. There don’t seem to be any drawback to legalising it.
