World Weed Web Part Four
Posted on January 06 2017
No, I’m not about to reveal to you an underground global web of marijuana and drug supply, I am, however, going to run through a few countries over the next few days who have either very different views on marijuana in terms of it’s legality, or just the ones you never really hear about. With the outlook for marijuana reform looking that little bit less bright, maybe it’s the right time to take your love for cannabis on tour. From the secrecy of the Far East to the vast cities of Europe, marijuana is pretty much everywhere, however, in some places it is more accepted than others. Some places where it is accepted or tolerated have become popular tourist destinations, the how and why of which is normally pretty obvious.
Day four and while I’m severely dehydrated and the such, I feel like I’m learning a lot, I hope you all feel the same, I’ve trekked across continents from east to west, now let me return east, even further east than before.
Australia seems like the kind of place where cannabis would be legal, we generally tend to have it in our heads that Australia is one big beach party, everyone is relaxed, which in turn gives you (me) the idea that cannabis may be legal.
It isn’t entirely legal, however, earlier last year medical marijuana was legalised on a federal level. This is a great step forward for a country who staunchly supported Richard Nixon during his war on drugs, adopting a similar stance, and it seems entirely possible that we may see an even bigger push towards full legalisation over the next few years.
