Fifteen years ago, if you were walking along the streets of Perth or Canberra with a small amount of cannabis in your pocket and you were stopped by police, you would have been treated pretty much the same way.

You would have been given an infringement notice, not charged with a crime.

In 2004, WA joined the ACT in decriminalising cannabis, meaning it was not legal to carry it for your own personal use, but if caught you wouldn't get a criminal record for doing so.
