Contrasting ‘Aussie Cannabis Culture’ With Legal Schemes Feat. Bec | Friendly Aussie Podcast – Episode 24

Our Friend Bec on the Big Differences Separating the ‘Scenes’ in Australia, the United States and Canada

Let’s face it… we may sink cones like absolute champs, but Aussie Cannabis Culture still doesn’t hold a torch to the developed industries in Canada and the USA. At least… not yet.

Bec spent years of her life working in the cannabis industry over in North America; in that time, she learned a lot about the everyday operations of cannabis dispensaries, labs and farms. When she returned from Canada and the States, it dawned on her just how far Australia was lagging behind.

When we asked Bec what was keeping us in this rut, she told us… plain and simple. The reforms to legal frameworks have opened up new possibilities. Cannabis and other drugs are losing their illicit status, which has made investment, research, development and production of quality, consistent product an everyday reality. The major risks and hazards have been eliminated.

Australia’s emerging cannabis industry is still fighting a legal battle, just to secure access to the plant. Other parts of the world have already moved on.

Legalise It: Dispensary Model

Cannabis is made easy with the dispensary. People can pick it up from the store, just as they would their alcohol or tobacco. If this doesn’t seem like a big deal to you, just imagine the opportunities for high quality, varied products that all display precise labelling of their genetics, growing conditions and cannabinoid content.

The Americans may not always get it right, politically… but hey, even a broken clock strikes right twice a day. Us Aussies need to learn from the experiences of North Americans and move away from the TGA-run medicinal system as quickly as possible. We ought to allow legal dispensaries to operate (under stringent regulation), for both medicinal and recreational patients, alike.
