Is Cannabis Legal in ACT

In the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), as of January 31, 2020, new legislation allows for changes to the rules concerning the personal use of cannabis for individuals over the age of 18. However, this does not align with the often-imagined concept of ‘legal weed’ as seen in some parts of the world. While residents can possess up to 50 grams of dry cannabis or 150 grams of wet (freshly harvested) cannabis. It remains illegal to sell or supply cannabis. Additionally, consumption in public places and drug driving are prohibited​​.

ACT residents may legally grow their own cannabis, with limits set at two plants per individual and four plants per household. These plants must be in private areas. Not accessible to the public, and cannabis cannot be grown in community gardens or parks. There are also laws in place against smoking cannabis in public spaces or near minors, and failing to store cannabis properly can result in fines or even jail time​​.

It’s important to note that while the ACT has made provisions for the private and personal use of cannabis, Commonwealth laws have not changed. This discrepancy suggests that ACT residents could potentially face charges under Commonwealth cannabis laws. The practical enforcement of these overlapping legal frameworks remains to be fully seen and understood​​.
