Cannabis is the wild card at the Queensland Election


KING CANUTE is famous for plonking his throne down on the beach and commanding the tide not to come in. Cannabis is being legalised all over the world and those who attempt to stem this tide are having as much success as King Canute.

Until now, politicians here have successfully resisted this because the major parties have maintained a united front to keep cannabis criminalised. Although many surveys show that a majority of people support legalisation, voters have had nowhere to vent their frustrations.

This all changed on 11 September when the Legalise Cannabis Queensland (LCQ) Party was officially registered. When nominations closed, they had 23 candidates up and ready to go. They range from Townsville through Rockhampton down to Brisbane and the Gold Coast and out to Nanango. The leaders of the LNP and Labor will both be facing LCQ candidates.

And to add extra spice to the mix, there are several high-profile independent pro-cannabis candidates. They are Lanai Carter in Waterford, Dr John Jiggens in South Brisbane and Finn Armstrong-Schmakeit in Bulimba.

The party with the most to fear is Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (PHON). Pauline Hanson famously claims that she says what we are thinking. Well, most of us are thinking that cannabis should be legalised. [Read more @ Independent Australia]
