The Dutch model, which regulated cultivation, is safer than what we have now.

But Health Minister Greg Hunt called on the party to withdraw its suggestion, arguing it risks the health of Australians.

"At the very time the world is facing an opioid crisis, the Greens want to give a blank cheque for another deeply addictive and unsafe drug", he said last night. This philosophy stands at the centre of the Greens' argument.

The Greens want to redefine cannabis as a legal substance, with licences issued for its production and sale.

Green Relief Inc.is a Canadian licensed producer of medical cannabis under Health Canada's Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). It would also make this agency the single wholesaler for the drug, selling on to licensed retailers.

Up to six plants could be grown for personal use.

However, the negative health impact of the drug have been described as minimal in the world's most comprehensive study into marijuana which was released a year ago by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

'In a poll past year, 55 per cent of Australians said they believe cannabis should be taxed and regulated like alcohol or tobacco'.

The party is confident that now is the right time for change on cannabis in Ireland.

A costing by the Parliamentary Budget Office for independent senator David Leyonhjelm, who wants marijuana legalised, found in 2016 that legalising cannabis would generate about $300 million a year in GST revenue, as well as save about $100 million a year in reduced Australian Federal Police and Australian Border Force costs.

Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation president Dr Alex Wodak welcomed the announcement.

Queensland's laws are the most flexible in the country, which grant patients of any age or suffering from a range of illnesses access to medicinal cannabis products.

But the Australian Medical Association has "significant reservations" about the proposal.

Currently, marijuana is only fully legal in a few places: Uruguay and parts of the United States.
