ALCP welcomes Prime Minister's cannabis comments

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott is calling for the legalisation of medical cannabis.

Mr Abbott's comments came on the same day as New South Wales and Victoria states announced they would be doing clinical trials of cannabis.

"If a drug that is proven to be safe abroad is needed here it should be available," Mr Abbott said.

Tony Abbott backs legalisation of medical cannabis

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has thrown his support behind the legalisation of cannabis for medical purposes.

In a letter to talkback radio host Alan Jones, Mr Abbott went even further than NSW Premier Mike Baird – who has approved a clinical trial of the use of medical cannabis – by saying that no further testing should be needed on the drug if it is legal in similar jurisdictions.

"I have no problem with the medical use of cannabis, just as I have no problem with the medical use of opiates."

All Black mulling US move to access Cannabis for son

All Black star Cory Jane and his wife Amie would consider moving their family to the US if it would help with the treatment of their epileptic son.

Parents of epileptic children from around the world - including New Zealand - are flying to the US, where the state of Colorado has legalised the use of marijuana and cannabis oil for medicinal reasons.

Amie Jane said her family would also consider such a move if 8-year-old Cassius suffered a setback with his own battle with epilepsy and ADHD.

Regulatory Regime for Cannabis Announced

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party announced its regulatory policy today, calling for a new Ministry of Cannabis.

The new regulatory authority would be established at a cost of $10 million according to ALCP's shadow budget.

ALCP regulatory spokesman Richard Goode said the Cannabis Ministry would issue licences for the commercial cannabis trade and help with training programmes for those interested in the industry.

Hemp biofuel key to Environmental Policy

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party has the best environmental policy of any political party.

It is the only party with a policy that can replace most petroleum products with biofuel, produced locally.

ALCP environment spokeswoman Romana Marnz Manning said hemp was a fast-growing, high cellulose plant, ideal for making biofuel.

InternetMana self-destructing over cannabis policy

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party is accusing InternetMana of cynical vote-grabbing over it's failed cannabis campaign.

InternetMana's credibility on cannabis policy was left in tatters yesterday when a leaked email exposed massive internal divisions over the issue.

ALCP leader Julian Crawford said the Internet Party campaigned on cannabis to try and steal ALCP's votes.
