The party is also proposing that criminal offences be removed for people over the age of 18 for possessing less than five grams of cannabis and for access to cannabis-based medicines be permitted.

Greens leader Richard Di Natale wants over 18's to be able to grow up to six plants in their backyard and buy cannabis from approved stores.

While the CDC report notes that self-reported use over the past month doesn't necessarily mean partaking or being impaired on the job, it suggests that "awareness of possible employee recreational marijuana use can inform employer policies regarding drug use and workplace impairment".

Marijuana use was next most prevalent in Colorado's arts, entertainment and recreation industry (28.3%), according to the report, followed by "other services (except public administration)" at 20.9%, construction at 19.7% and real estate at 19.6%.

"Governments around the world are realising that prohibition of cannabis causes more harm than it prevents".

"It's time Australia joined them", he said. Our plan to create a legal market for cannabis production and sale will reduce the risks, bust the business model of criminal dealers and syndicates and protect young people from unfair criminal prosecutions.

A national agency would be established to issue those licences and oversee regulations.

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan toldTheJournal.ie that the creation of a coffee-shop culture in Ireland might prompt cannabis-takers to use the drug in a regulated environment.

Individual Australian territories criminalized recreational cannabis use between the 1920s and 1950s, but many of these territories decriminalized minor cannabis offenses in the early 2000s.

In Canada, legislation to legalise cannabis is set to begin on July 1 this year - the Canadian law would allow up to 30g of cannabis possession for personal use.

He said the Greens had rehashed an existing policy, which was the equivalent of "political click-bait".

Western Australia's state Labor government was the first to rule out decriminalising or legalising cannabis on Tuesday.

"Using cannabis remains illegal, but this has not stopped Australians from using it", Di Natale said.

"It drives people away from getting help when they need it and exposes them to a unsafe black market", Senator Di Natale said.

Crossbench senator Derryn Hinch also backed the Greens' push, saying "you'd ban alcohol and cigarettes" too if the argument was that it's bad for you.

"Banning cannabis hasn't reduced its use or availability yet it has distracted police from following up more serious crimes, harmed a lot of young people and helped make some criminals rich", Alex Wodak, president of the Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation, said to The Guardian.
