Australian Laws and Legislation
Australia has adopted harm minimization strategies with an emphasis on treatment when it comes to simple marijuana offenses. Trafficking and exportation still fall into federal jurisdiction for large amounts with severe penalties. Most offenses are ruled within the territories legislation.
Penalties for cultivation have become harsher since more people have began and attracted attention to it with large-scale operations. The laws are confusing and often debated, with some arguing that possession is essentially legal.
Tasmania Specific Laws
Launceston is a part of Tasmania and thus follows their legislation. If you have under 50 grams it is at police discretion. You can receive up to three cautions here instead of the normal two in New South Wales. One can expect referrals to treatment programs or fines if busted. Cautions are given for first three offenses under 50 grams. Over 50 grams is considered conspiracy to sell or trafficking and you will incur a fined or a court appearance and possibly jail time.
Marijuana possession is only treated as a minor offense if only small amounts are in possession and is dealt with lightly. In late 2006 Tasmania police introduced random drug testing for marijuana and amphetamines on the road.
