There is talk of "help" being offered to "drug users" instead of punishment - presumably those drug users without victims and those with victims may still be punished for "other" crimes?
" I don’t see why those convicted of drug offences cannot be offered medical and therapeutic help, where appropriate as an alternative to fines or custody." - says one MP
But cannabis is itself "medical and therapeutic help" for most users - so what will they do with us?
Answer: what they ought to do - give us more good cannabis!

Another Royal Commission is not needed, it would take 5 to 7 years and the previous two Royal Commissions on cannabis were not just ignored but Government actually moved the other way to their recommendations.
In the report they spout about offering treatment rather than punishment, as if the two cannot be the same thing for some people, what a choice! But since cannabis users are not addicts there can be no treatment which means all they can do to us is punish us.
Is it time for civil unrest / disobedience: There have been plenty of studies and inquiries, few even recommend legalisation as an option, we do not need more delaying tactics, we need change
If they ignored us as users - it would be like decriminalisation - they need to legalise us and PROTECT us so long as we do no harm to others
