LOOK FOR THE LEAF in all States and Territories of Australia on election day. Send a clear message to policy-makers from the privacy of a polling booth near you.
SENATE BALLOT PAPER – How to vote: Look for the leaf above the line. Write 1 in the the box. Select at least six parties. Number them in the order of your choice.
ALLOW HOMEGROWN – Millions of everyday Australians could so easily grow their own plants instead of pouring millions of dollars every week into the black market.
CHANGE DRIVING LAWS – Saliva testing and instant loss of licence for just the presence of cannabis is nothing to do with impairment at all. Even legally prescribed medical cannabis patients are not allowed to drive.
“Lance knows the positive outcomes from use of medicinal cannabis including the health-giving properties western medicine has been aware of for decades”.
Lance Lawrence is a long time proponent of Cannabis law reform.
A local, with fifty years in the Territory, a bushman, horseman, poet and Aboriginal Affairs Advocate, Lance is also a long time proponent of Cannabis law reform. He relentlessly scrutinises the political landscape, campaigning and advocating for a fairer and more righteous one.
As a prolific writer and political commentator, Lance’s ‘letters to the editor’ for over 40 years have been in response to core issues surrounding the unfair and unreasonable prohibition of Cannabis, ongoing mistreatment of the Indigenous and failure of governments to adequately support and resource the people and communities of the Territory, as well as many other local issues.
Lance stood for election to the House of Representatives as a candidate for Solomon in 2016 and branded amendments to the NT’s Misuse of Drugs Act, that banned ‘bongs’, as hypocrisy and an example of government trying to further demonise Cannabis to maintain prohibition. Lance knows the positive outcomes from use of medicinal Cannabis including the health-giving properties western medicine has been aware of for decades.
Kelly-anne Hibbert knows how Cannabis can help people find a better quality of life.
Kelly-Anne knows how Cannabis can help people find a better quality of life. “I am a ‘stoner’”, she says. Not the ignorant Australian definition, though. “I am the ‘stoner’ who gets up in the morning, has her morning medicine and ensures her kids are well-rested, fed, happy and clean! They go to school. I go to work. I clean the house, prepare dinner, wipe away tears when they appear and provide comfort. All of this while ‘STONED’”.
Kelly-Anne suffers Bipolar type 2, ADD, PTSD and Generalised Anxiety Disorder for which the proposed pharmaceuticals included lithium, amphetamines, anti-psychotics and benzo’s. With the help of Cannabis daily, Kelly-Anne is able to limit her pharmaceutical intake to a single SNRI.
Kelly-Anne believes a large percentage of the medicated population would prefer her lifestyle, especially if they could legally grow their own medicine. “It’s not hurting anyone, it’s not forcing people to grow plants or smoke weed”, she says. “I became a candidate because I’m an empath. It physically pains me that others cannot see what I can see about Cannabis and I just want to educate people”.
“Cannabis Heals, Not Hinders!”
