We are proud to have successfully lobbied for the first ever Parliamentary inquiry into cannabis regulation in NSW.

The inquiry will be chaired by Legalise Cannabis MP Jeremy Buckingham, so you’ll be assured that this is no empty talkfest.

The timing is tight – we need a report finished by September in time for the NSW Drug Summit at the end of the year.

So you need to get your submission in by the end of next week – Friday May 17.

How do you make a submission? It’s easy.


Click on the “submissions” tab and fill in the form.

If you click on the “terms of reference” tab and open the PDF, you’ll see what we’re after. It’s very broad.

Just tell your story.

  • How do you use cannabis?
  • How does the law get in the way?
  • How has it held you back or caused you suffering?
  • What changes to the law make sense to you?
  • What’s your solution to drug-driving laws?


One word of warning – DON’T ADMIT TO ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY – you may choose to click “keep submission confidential” in the second step anyway.

Michael Balderstone

President Nimbin HEMP Embassy & Legalise Cannabis Australia

I discovered cannabis by accident when I was 25 years old, fifty years ago.

It changed my life. I used to get debilitating migraines from stress that they now call PTSD.

They were really the result of a traumatic childhood being sent to a boarding school at a young age with a paedophile teacher and the like.

The immediate relief from cannabis in my head and body that day was nothing short of miraculous. I have loved it ever since.

I have tried being without it at various times but always return and with immediate relief. I guess I’m satisfied with my endocannabinoid system as we now understand.

Over time I’ve learnt how to use it, which cannabis strains work best for me.

There is a real medical science to be studied here and many people over the years have taught me by sharing their own experience. Some weed energises me and some is fantastic sleeping medicine.
