Kiwis Are about to Vote on Changing Canabis Laws
There will be a public referendum on the legalization of legalising cannabis for personal use and it will be held by the 2020 election as part of the agreement between the Green and Labour parties.
The Green Party leader James Shaw’s party is backing cannabis legalization for 20 years, and the use of the substance should be a health issue, not a criminal justice issue. A referendum on the issue by 2020 will be held.
New Zealand First supports a referendum on the decriminalisation of cannabis.
Shaw said there was nothing in the Labour-Green agreement that New Zealand couldn’t live with, and the same applied for the Greens in relation to the Labour-NZF agreement.
