The latest poll shows that most voters do not want recreational cannabis to be legalised.
The result, from the 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton Poll, showed that 52 per cent opposed legalisation, while 39 per cent favoured legalisation; 8 per cent did not know and 1 per cent said they would not vote.
It contrasts to other recent polls that showed majority support for legalisation, including last month when 52 per cent of those surveyed said in a Horizon poll that they would vote to legalise, while 37 per cent said they would vote ‘no’.
Officials are currently putting together a draft bill that will outline a proposed regulatory regime for legal cannabis, which will then be put to the public in a vote at the 2020 election.
It’s a non-binding referendum with a confusingly unclear question that has been handicapped by a lack of clear leadership in Parliament.
Hosking has attacked Chloe in his latest show and it came across the way you thought it would, like a Fox News host attacking a handcuffed infant with a machete.
Chloe turned up to have a sensible discussion, Mike turned up to put a sleeping kitten into a blender.
If you pick a fight with a dirty fighter, you don’t turn up to box Queensberry Rules.
For the record Mike Hosking, you fucking moron, the increase in Colorado drivers crashing with cannabis in their system DOESN’T MEAN they were impaired, it means they had a joint in the last 6 weeks. Your inability to differentiate that shows you have a, shallow Talkback Radio Host level of understanding which is extraordinary when you are claiming to be ‘winning’ the argument. You mean propagating lies, falsehoods and ignorance as information.
That’s ‘winning’ is it you arsehole?
This one sided fight sums up how the cannabis referendum has so far been managed and why it might be slipping away.
There needs to be some bold leadership on this, because even supporters of cannabis reform are falling asleep.
