New Zealand Referendum to Legalise Marijuana.

in WeedCash Network8 months ago (edited)

New Zealand held a referendum on the legalisation of recreational marijuana at their national election on 17th October 2020. The results from that referendum are still pending and official results will be released on 6th November.

50% of the population in NZ have tried Cannabis and the current Prime Minister believes that users should not be jailed for smoking weed. The government projects that it will boost the economy to the tune of $2 billion a year and reduce the need for law enforcement to focus on cannabis and can redirect their efforts to other more serious crimes.

There will also be the flow on effect of many Australians jumping over the ‘ditch’ to get their hands on some Mary Jane. Which has me asking (again), when will Australia get off their hands and allow the country to vote on the legalisation of pot.

In the end, the cannabis legalisation debate is not one about criminalisation, but rather about health. More money gained from legalisation could be pushed into medical areas and the amount of $$$ gained by criminal activities would be reduced as well.

Come on Australia, have the balls to put the vote to the people and let the population decide.

Thanks for reading.

"Legalization" is a lie, unfortunately. Nobody wants to hear it, but I was there, I was part of the entire process here in Canada, as a Vancouver-based cannabis activist for 10 years. Legalization is code for government monopolization and control. It's literally a trap for eager, well-meaning, and foolish citizens. They started in Canada about 20 years ago with medical exemptions, and finally captured the trillion dollar market fully in 2018.

I even made a documentary about it, and warned that it would be tried in places like New Zealand next, and that the Kiwis too would fall for it.

What we want is called decriminalization, nothing more and nothing less. If we don't get 100% decrim, or if anything else comes along with it (like limits on private gardens), then it's just 1 step forward and 3 steps back. It's tyranny with a tiny of bit partial freedom, to make it palatable.

Please, do NOT "legalize" cannabis in my home country of New Zealand! : (

Thanks for the reply. I'll take a look at the documentary now.

Thanks. It won't explain everything, but I'm available to provide evidence or explanation of anything you're not sure about. I have no agenda other than Liberty for all, and any form of cannabis prohibition (including what they call "legalization") is not acceptable to me. If all you're after is the right to smoke a joint at the park without the cops showing up, you'll (sort of) get that, but it will come at a massive price not seen until after. An unpayable price, had you known the cost up front... which is where I come in. All the best.
