We actually came up with 112 members very rapidly (70 joined in the week before the cutoff), but 16 had not updated their enrolment details with the Electoral Commission in time for the cutoff date.

Big things usually have to start small.

'Be the change you want to see in the world' and all that.

Ahhh, the ACT...

...famous for two things:

1. The seat of the Aus federal government.

2. The only place in Aus where hardcore porn is legal.

Coincidence? You decide.

as well as:

"The Australian Capital Territory introduced a civil penalty system for the possession of ‘small amounts’ of cannabis in 1993. If someone is caught with up to two non-hydroponic cannabis plants, or up to 25 grams of marijuana (cannabis plant material), they receive a $100 fine with 60 days to expiate (pay the fine) instead of a criminal charge. Instead of paying the fine, the person may choose to attend a drug assessment and treatment program."

Ahhh yes the seat of Australian government
