BUY CANNABIS IN PERTH
Cannabis is yet to be totally legalized in Australia. It can be used for Medical purposes but not recreational use. That’s a loss to Western Australia (WA) and a legislative situation which does not address WA’s needs.
Statistics reveal that Western Australians have the highest Cannabis usage reports in the country, according to a 2010 study. Data supplied by the national drugs and alcohol survey indicated that no less than 32% of WA teenagers (18-19) had used the substance in the 12 months prior to the test date. Given the negative effects of Cannabis consumption, especially in young people WA’s numbers represents some concern for that area. (For context, the National average level of consumption was that 25.1% of teenagers (18-19) had consumed recreational cannabis in the previous month.
Cannabis is currently legal when used for medical purposes in Australia. A bill will be introduced to legalise in Canberra for recreational purposes in February 2019
Can you buy cannabis in Perth?
The answer to this question depends on what you want to use the Cannabis for. Since the drug has been legalized (for medical uses) at the National level, states like West Australia.
To obtain a prescription, the user will have to get a prescription from an authorized doctor, before they can go buy from a pharmacist.
Is Cannabis Legal in Perth?
According to the survey referenced above, 27.6% of the West Australian adult population admitted to having used the drug in the previous 12 months. All of those bought it illegally.
In addition to legalizing marijuana for Medical use, Perth also operated a decriminalization model for the drug in its region. This allowed those who were caught possessing or growing certain amounts of the drug to be let go with just a slap on the wrist – in form of a civil penalty – usually a small fine. Perth’s rules around being caught with Cannabis are far less stringent than those suffered by the inhabitants of other states, New South Wales in particular which has far stricter rules for those caught in possession.
Unfortunately for those interested in buying Cannabis in Perth, the decriminalization scheme was scrapped in 2011. Now, anyone caught with up to 10 grams of the substance (or a used smoking apparatus – known to the Police as ‘paraphernalia’ ) are now subject to a cannabis intervention. (Training and education, rather than a fine and potential jail time).
There have also been various cases of large-scale cannabis drug busts in the region for those higher up the drug chain.
