    Is it illegal or finable / arrestable for an intention to buy drugs? o_O (in Australia)

    I'm trying to calm a friend down who said he's going to get fucked over from it due to what someone sent him (but I think it's all bullshit anyway) and Google hasn't helped me much

    Australia was strict as when I was there about a year ago or so, its not catergorized into classes over there so its all as bad as each other I.e. Weed is on par with Coke, Pills etc. I know as much that you'll definitely get a stern talking to by the police if you're caught with a personal supply, as for dealing I can only presume they'll crack down pretty hard on it.

    However, that all being said I lived in Sydney where the police were absolute cunts and Oz is a big-ass place, all about going to Nybmn though- The cops literally turn a blind eye to smoking weed there, surfers paradise wasnt too bad either while I was there.

    Elaboration on the story more?

    its not illegal as such but police can do you for getting hash or whatever repeatedly sent to your house. girl i used to know would send a heap of hash to her house every time she visited amsterdam (then sell it) and the police came a knockin one day and said listen you, stop that or else.

    Unless theres solid proof of your intentions... ie... i written letter saying... i am about to sell you some drugs... then the police can not proove your intentions and therefore can not arrest.
