Hey look, drugs are everywhere, my experience is though near birmingham you have to go looking for them if you want it..
But in SA it is legal to grow upto 10 marajuana plants for personal use, over 90% of under 15's have tried it. Adelaide is Australia's drug capital...
I am probably being very naive here, but as an ex drugworker and having some experience of being around people who dabble in everything from marijuana to crack cocaine, reading your post has shocked me! I am truly amazed(although my OH Bill is totally unfazed) by the fact that people are allowed to grow their own weed! Where will I find the evidence for this (I think, irresponsible) by-law? I am speechless!!!!
Your comments concerned me as I grew up in Adelaide. I have checked reputable sources on the internet. Drug and Alcohol Services of SA research in 2005 says less than 40% of 12-17yo's have tried cannabis. The figures are similar if you look at 14yo's in 2004. This suggests that cannabis use is not endemic.
It is now illegal to grow cannabis in SA. In 1985 they did change the law to allow for 10 plants for personal use but they found it was wrong to do so. The law was then changed by the liberal government with the support of the labour opposition a few years ago in SA. If you are caught in possession of less than one plant you may get a fine. Over that you will get a criminal record.
Emerging research on cannabis has now dispelled the myth that it is a 'soft' drug.
Back to the original thread
I live in Seaford and in walking distance from my house are a decent shopping centre, library, swim centre, numerous fast food outlets, a high school, a private primary school and a couple of public primary schools. I am a parent helper at a local joey group which also has cubs and scouts attatched. There are numerous play areas and a couple of skate parks too!
Hope that helps
There are two lasting bequests that we can hope to give our children - one of those is roots: the other is wings!
As said in other posts..........................Try and live by a train line .it gives easy access into the city
look up West lake shore.
really close to absolutly every thing wonderful location for kids, on Fridays they do little atheletics at the school not just running they do hurdleing, long jump highjump, javelling ect 3 years plus
We have access to the city via the train , and I must say , ive used it quite a few times for entertainment purposes
