There needs to be a voice for the Cannabis Industry if the new referendum is to mean anything.
The problem of course is that while it’s illegal, it can’t speak.
We need a heavily regulated, taxed market that allows for small and medium business to become craft beer level enterprises.
A certification process for recreational cannabis and medicinal cannabis growers and a licence process for retailers.
We don’t want commercialisation or mass market advertising, that simply allows for trans nationals to move in.
Moving to a taxed and regulated cannabis market would create jobs, tax revenue and a huge drop in prison and policing costs.
If the referendum question only settles medicinal cannabis or personal use, we will have all missed a real opportunity to control cannabis, weaken organised crime and build economically on it.
