The Greens have called for cannabis to be legalised in Australia for recreational use, with its sale to be managed through a government agency. The Australian Cannabis Agency would serve as the sole wholesaler of the drug, while people would be able to grow up to six cannabis plants at home for their own use. Announcing its policy, Greens leader Richard Di Natale said "the war on drugs has failed". The Greens contend that its policy would help to reduce crime, as well as boosting the Budget by hundreds of millions of dollars.
