Why do you need to get rid of him? Could you tell him to just smoke up outside? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

can't work out whether you are the text-book aussie **** stirrer having a piss-take, or just a bit of a wowser.<br><br>
The cops are not going to do anything about dope where you live because of it's decriminalized status. they have better **** to do.lol

Wait do you mean dope as in marijuana the herb? If it's that then lmao, if you mean smoking like heroine or some crap then i understand. I have a feeling that it's about weed, which i just think is funny.

When I researched how to rent out a room, I read a few places that it was best to go month to month, without a contract, as it offers more freedom to both parties.<br><br>
If I had a boarder who was doing something that I didn't like, I would try to work out some type of compromise, until I could get them to leave.

Does your contract specifically state "no drug use of any kind"? Have you talked to him about his smoking?</div>
</div>
<br>
I told the guy when he moved in i dont tollerate drugs. The agreement does state no illegal activity. Dope is illegal in Australia who ever tells you other wise is full of ****.<br><br>
Would you really want to live with an alcoholic who smokes dope has no job is constantly behind on rent??? If the cops come to my house ill get busted not the wanker with the dope.

Seems like him being constantly behind on the rent would be a way to get rid of him...

No, you're misinformed.<br><br>
Dope has been decriminalised in SA and has not been illegal for over twenty-five years. It's a $50 fine for possession of up to 100 gms or one plant. It's also decrim'd in WA, ACT, NT. The only states where it is illegal is NSW, VIC, Tazzie and QLD. Even those states usually hand out cautions for possession of small quantities.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

No you won't. Just tell them it belongs to your boarder.<br><br>
Dope is the most widely used drug in Australia, if you are not happy with boarders being in possession of it in your house maybe you should think twice about opening your house up to people who you don't know.

Cannabis and the Law<br>
In South Australia, cannabis is prohibited, and possessing, using, cultivating, selling, or dealing in cannabis is illegal. Offences relating to personal possession or use of cannabis or related smoking equipment by adults can be dealt with by paying an on-the-spot fine, which results in the offender avoiding a criminal conviction.

Cannabis and the Law<br>
In South Australia, cannabis is prohibited, and possessing, using, cultivating, selling, or dealing in cannabis is illegal. <b>Offences relating to personal possession or use of cannabis or related smoking equipment by adults can be dealt with by paying an on-the-spot fine, which results in the offender avoiding a criminal conviction.</b></div>
</div>
<br>
You are not understanding the differences in the law between dealing/selling and personal use. <b>Read the highlighted part in your own post above</b>. That is what decriminalisation means. We're talking about the law in regard to possession of small amounts intended for personal use - for which there is NO criminal conviction just an on-the-spot-fine. That is why the cops were not interested when you rang them.<br><br>
From the Legal Services Commission of SA:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><i>Cannabis Expiation Notice</i><br>
Where a person commits a simple cannabis <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4099390" target="_blank"><i>offence</i></a> the police have <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4096944" target="_blank"><i>discretion</i></a> to issue a Cannabis Expiation Notice. This requires payment of an on the spot fine and allows an individual to avoid <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4135829" target="_blank"><i>prosecution</i></a> in court.<br>
The expiation notice must be given to the <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4045479" target="_blank"><i>alleged</i></a><a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4099402" target="_blank"><i>offender</i></a> stating that the offence may be expiated by payment to the Commissioner of Police of the prescribed expiation fee before the expiration of 28 days from the date of the notice. The notice may be given personally to the <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4080521" target="_blank"><i>alleged</i></a> <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4134980" target="_blank"><i>offender</i></a> or posted to his or her last known place of residence.<br><i>No <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4100070" target="_blank">prosecution</a> for expiated offences</i><br>
Where the offence is expiated (that is, the fee paid within time) no <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4100070" target="_blank"><i>prosecution</i></a> for the offence shall proceed. In addition, the payment of an expiation fee will not be regarded as an admission of guilt [<a href="http://www.legislation.sa.gov.au/LZ/C/A/EXPIATION%20OF%20OFFENCES%20ACT%201996.aspx" target="_blank">Expiation of Offences Act 1996</a> s 15(4)]. If the amount of the expiation notice is not paid the person will receive a <a href="http://www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au/go01.php#id4101425" target="_blank"><i>summons</i></a> to go to court. If the offence is expiated, any substance and equipment may also be forfeited [s 15(5)].</div>
</div>
<br><br>
If you still pig-headedly refuse to believe that personal possession of small amounts has been decriminalised long ago, the very same site you linked to has an article about <b>the effect that decriminalisation in Australia has had.</b> <a href="http://www.dassa.sa.gov.au/webdata/resources/files/MONOGRAPH6.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.dassa.sa.gov.au/webdata/r...MONOGRAPH6.pdf</a>

I advise that you force the police to at least write up a statement that your roomate is taking drugs and has threatened two people. Have them sign it and give you a copy. At the very least, it will help save your ass if anything goes down. And it might just get some policemen fired for not doing their job.

i'd say you could pal up to him, and start smoking pot with him. then always mooch from him every time you see him, and get pissy when he doesn't have any smoke. that will run him off pretty quick.
