The Victorian government has failed to respond to formal recommendations that it consider legalising cannabis for personal use
The government is also seven months late in responding to an inquiry into cannabis use.
The inquiry recommended the government consider legalising cannabis for adult personal use, under a similar model to that used in the ACT, where people are allowed to possess, use and supply small quantities of cannabis, as well as to cultivate two plants per person at home.
Fiona Patten, the chair of Legislative Council’s legal and social issues committee that led two of the inquiries, said the government was “showing significant hubris” by failing to respond.
“Not to mention it’s actually contemptuous of the parliament to refuse to respond to these reports,” Patten said.
