Australia’s attorney-general says Canberra local law on cannabis has no legal force

“While legal in most of Australia, medicinal cannabis products are allowed only to patients on the prescription of a doctor, and a license is required to grow and make medicinal cannabis” writes Midwest Communications Inc for MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Australian Attorney-General Christian Porter said on Sunday that Canberra’s new legislation legalizing possession of small amounts of cannabis for personal use do not provide legal protection and clash with federal laws.Federal law prohibits such use, however, and Porter, who has been reviewing the ACT laws and on Sunday sent a letter to the ACT attorney-general, signaled this will not change.”If they leave their law as it is, why would there be any need to override a law which is effectively to no effect?” he said.
