In Australia a political party has been formed to campaign for the legalisation of cannabis. Called the Australian Marijuana Party, it believes that an enlightened community approach is the most effective way of dealing with drug problems and that the legalisation of cannabis -- also known among a plethora of other nicknames as marijuana -- is the first step towards a solution. The party plans to put up candidates in state and federal elections to campaign on a legalisation platform. This week they got underway with a protest "smoke-in" among lunch-time crowds in the heart of Sydney. ATN7 reporter Bob Hurst was there.
