How can someone not get bail for a few plants, but in Townsville you kill a child in a hot car and get BAIL free as a bird. The system is broken a minor offence compared to death its unastralian,those judges don’t have a clue they live in there ivory towers drive to work and don’t get touched by ordinary everyday people. SHAME SHAME SHAME do the government not no how much money they could make if they decriminalised cannabis NEW ZEALAND estimated one billion dollars in the first cpl yrs how much could Australia make if they pulled there head out of the sand.
