No shit sherlock, knock me over with a feather clever Trevor.
Here’s the press release for the most unsurprising research of the week from the University of Qld.
As for the following figures we don’t know who they have been interviewing but these numbers cannot be a representative sample of Australian adolescents or the kids are just bullshitting the researchers
“Our study showed that 13 per cent of adolescents (aged 12-17) and 15 per cent of young adults (aged 18-25) would try cannabis if it were legal…….“Of these, 85 per cent of the adolescents and 59 per cent of the young adults said they had never used cannabis before.
Here at CLR we know we’ll be in trouble for anecdotal evidence but as we are surrounded by Australian highschoolers and those in early tertiary education in Sydney we’d suggest that up to 60% if not more have already tried cannabis and it has been ever thus since the 1970’s. Acadamics, politicians and policy makers have to stop kidding themselves about recreational cannabis use in Australia and really get to grips with policy rather continuing to allow making some people extremely wealthy because they sell an in demand commodity and don’t pay tax.
Even the Murdoch press know the reality !
MAKING a bong out of a plastic bottle and garden hose is more than just a favourite pastime, it turns out Aussies are more partial to hitting the billy than anyone else on the planet.
This is the finding of the world’s biggest annual drug survey, which had more than 115,000 participants from 50 countries, including 5,700 respondents from Australia.
The Global Drug Survey, conducted by an independent research company in London, provides the largest in-depth examination at how drug habits vary between regions.
Locally, more than 75 per cent of Aussies admitted to using illicit drugs at one point in their life, while 30 per cent confessed to indulging in illegal substances a month before the survey.

The press release for the published research…
A number of young Australians say they would use cannabis for the first time if it were legal, a UQ study has found.
Researchers from UQ’s National Centre for Youth Substance Use Research and the School of Psychology used survey data from more than 3,000 adolescents and young adults to estimate how many might consider using the drug if it was legally available.
Study lead Dr Janni Leung said the potential for increased cannabis use by young people remained a key concern of opponents of a change in the law.
“Support for legalising recreational use of cannabis has increased in high-income populations around the world, including Australia,” Dr Leung said.
“Our study showed that 13 per cent of adolescents (aged 12-17) and 15 per cent of young adults (aged 18-25) would try cannabis if it were legal.
“Of these, 85 per cent of the adolescents and 59 per cent of the young adults said they had never used cannabis before.
“While most young Australians did not intend to use the drug, we have a substantial minority who say they would try it for the first time if it were legal to do so.
“In addition, young people who have used cannabis before expressed their intention to increase their use if it were allowed by law.”
Dr Leung said the legalisation of cannabis for recreational use should be accompanied by public health resources to discourage use during adolescence and inform the public about the risks of regular cannabis use.
“Our study gives policymakers and health service providers a glimpse of the potential impacts of cannabis legalisation on adolescents and young adults in Australia,” she said.
“This data could be used to inform and plan for public health interventions, treatment services, educational campaigns, and regulations needed for jurisdictions that have adopted or are considering legalising cannabis for recreation use.”

7 Amazing Things to Know About Cannabis for an Amazing Love Life
How often have you heard someone say that food tastes better when you’re high? The same could go on and on about many other things. The hemp is a herb that coaxes you to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life, quite literally! That being said, one of the newest rage among 420-community is the impact it has on your love life. Indeed, you might have heard about the far-reaching benefits of CBD in your daily life, including fitness, wellness, spirituality, etc. The newest benefit could be witnessed not just alone but with your partner too.
Cannabis in Hindu Tantra was used for enhancing intimacy with your partners. And now as several countries have opened up to the hemp, it has again found its way into your hearts by improving your relationship in the following ways:– 👇
Helps You Share Everything With Your Partner, Even Munchies
It is no surprise that CBD lowers your inhibitions, and therefore there are no holds barred between you and your partner. More importantly, CBD brings back the pangs – not just in the hearing but also in the stomach. Therefore, be it sharing your deepest emotions and desires or sharing a bowl of midnight munchies, weed has you covered!
It is already a no-brainer how sharing with your significant other can improve the connection you have. Weed simply puts the smoke aside and sparks the fire between you. So, the next time your heart feels heavy or your stomach a bit light, consider popping a few THC gummies with your partner. Remember sharing is caring! Improves Your Communication With Your Partner
Improves Your Communication With Your Partner
CBD and Communication? Yes, CBD heightens your reception but lowers your agitation. Therefore, you and your partner communicate better and, more importantly, openly. The only thing that impairs communication between two people is stress. The more you bottle-up feelings, the more you are prone to an outburst. Weed helps you relax and take things slow. Talk it out with your partner and stop to take a deep breath only.
Makes You very Sensitive To Your Partner’s Feelings
CBD broadens your horizons. It helps you think from the other person’s point of view. CBD’s consumers are more likely to take care of the smaller things that their partners like. For example, many cannabis couples indulge in baking and cooking meals before being baked themselves! Weed helps you to pause and reflect. Since no judgment and discourse are open two-way between you and your partner, you are more likely to understand and feel their perspective better.
Boost Sexual Intimacy
Data collected by a popular dating app indicated that CBD for energy has latent aphrodisiac properties that boost sexual intimacy between you and your partner. CBD’s consumers are more likely to get off and have a pleasurable orgasm than others. Most CBD products also heighten your sensitivity towards the touch.
Research indicates that CBD consumers tend to have frequent coitus and better orgasms. Especially for women, it helps to peak faster and climax better. Satisfied couples tend to be happy couples.
Makes Each Other’s Company More Pleasurable
CBD’s takers often break out into giggles and laughter. The smallest and most unlikely of places become funny anecdotes. You and your partner can enjoy the small joys in life. Weed helps you sit back and take notice of the little things they do for you. With a casual hug or just holding hands through a horror movie, everything becomes a tad bit more lovable. Isn’t it?
Baked Partners Bicker Less
The next time things get heated up, you should lighten the ambiance, literally! The next time you and your partner want to sit down for a “talk,” how about doing it over a shared joint instead? You can find any online weed dispensary to fulfill your need for the joint. Weed lowers inhibitions but restricts reactions to a mild nature. It helps to ensure a more fruitful discussion minus the loud decibel levels.
In a sober life, saying sorry may take a lot of effort, but under the right circumstances admitting fault and moving past it without judgment is achieved better. Weed may not be the outlet for your problems, but it can be the right emotional outlet to better discuss your problems.
Deepens Your Connection With Your Partner
Partners who bong better, bond better! Humor aside, it is right for CBD power couples. CBD has a magical way of bringing back the spark with your partner with the carefree spontaneity that you relish. It helps you think about them and, very importantly, for them.
Be it a casual stroll in the park with a deep conversation about ‘Hello Kitty’ or just the random staring into deep eyes while she does the talking. CBD influence helps you relish every moment that you spend with your better half.
It relieves you of the superficial fights and small issues and encourages you to notice the things you like about them. Deep, meaningful relations are not forged overnight. They are a result of long intimate, and powerful memories with strong emotions. CBD, therefore, helps you to recreate that magic and give everyone some serious couple goals!
👉 Final Thought
As cannabis culture is catching on, it is being accepted legally in the majority of the countries. A weed-friendly relationship tends to be more open and less prone to inhibitions. This paves the way for a stronger, healthier bond physically and emotionally. You also try it if you have not yet and spice up your bond with your partner!
