Australia: Parents Growing a Single Marijuana Plant Could Be Jailed for 12 Months
[link to zen-haven.dk]

[snip]

Parents could be jailed for 12 months and have their children put in state care for growing just one marijuana plant in Western Australia under arguably the nation’s toughest drug laws.

Amendments to WA’s Misuse of Drugs Act passed on Friday mean people convicted of cultivating a single cannabis plant or processing the drug where a child has suffered harm face a 12-month mandatory prison term.

Those convicted of a second drug offence where they were growing just one plant or processing it – hanging it to dry or rolling a joint – face a mandatory jail term of six months if it is proved they endangered a child’s health by exposing them to the activity.

Examples of where parents could be jailed for 12 months include a child being exposed to fertilisers or pesticides, cutting themselves on gardening equipment, or knocking over an enclosure or pot containing a marijuana plant that subsequently injures them.

The draconian laws are a far cry from just a year ago, when cultivation of up to two cannabis plants for personal use resulted in a $150 fine and drug counselling.

Here in the states depending on the size of the plant they could charge a serious felony meaning 5 years probation/prison and lose the house/farm.

Its a bit of a sensationalist title the news uses as that only results if the child was directly harmed by it.
Meaning if they got electrocuted by lights or a plant fell on them and hurt them.

What its for is hydro set ups there has been many busted large ones selling for profit and the children had burns from the lights and stuff.
They basically built 200 plant hydro setups in to their house.

If you had a plant in the back yard or something it would not apply its for extreme cases and primarily for meth labs which are becoming an epidemic in some places here.

I don't even use this plant but I'm with you - it shouldn't even be in the law books as an issue!

Don't ban it or legalise it - rather remove from the law books altogether!

Probably a Tory stealth ban, Labor decriminalised in similar to SA, small amounts for personal use. I guess sandgropers will have to rely on their childfree friends for a smoke.
