Australia

Down under, another country blessed with incredible scenery and even better beaches and was also kind enough to (mostly) decriminalize weed. While medicinal use is legal across Australia, personal use has only been decriminalized in a few states. Australia’s Northern Territory, South Australia, and the Australian Capital Territory all make the list, and in 2016, the first cannabis clubs began opening up to make distribution easier.

Australia has some of the most gorgeous natural landscapes on the planet and is famously eco-conscious. This vast country has bucket list items like the great barrier reef, and plenty of natural parks and world heritage sites to explore. Australia has been investing heavily in wind and solar energy to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future down under.
