Family First Comment: The Drug Foundation continues to push the smoke-screen of ‘medicinal’ and ‘decriminalise’ in order to legalise drugs in NZ. But who wants dope growers and dealers next door to your family home? Who wants tinnie houses on your street corner? It’s time to speak up #saynopetodope
Sixty per cent of National voters want personal possession of cannabis decriminalised or made legal, a new poll released just weeks before the election reveals.
Support is even higher amongst supporters of other parties – with Labour and New Zealand First voters equally in favour of cannabis law reform.
The results were:
• Possessing a small amount of cannabis for personal use
• Growing a small amount of cannabis for personal use
• Growing a small amount of cannabis for giving or selling to your friends
• Growing and/or using cannabis for any medical reasons such as to alleviate pain
• Growing and/or using cannabis for medical reasons if you have a terminal illness
• Selling cannabis from a store
The poll was conducted from July 3-18, with 938 people participating. The margin of error is +/-3.1 per cent.
