These American Religious Right funded mutants are LYING with this ad that they have paid for in the newspaper yesterday.
The legislation specifically rules this type of shop out!
NZ prohibitionists are desperate & frightened that the referendum is getting close and they are openly lying about what the law will do.
When people start to openly deceive others, that’s when the rest of us needs to turn on them.
Smash these liars by voting yes in the cannabis referendum.
The latest research released under OIA last week clearly points out how defective and counterproductive the current prohibition of cannabis is and it infuriates me that there are NZers still intending to vote against the Cannabis referendum.
The BERL report commissioned by the ministry of Justice is devastating to the nope to dope campaign.
A legal cannabis market for recreational use could generate $675 million a year for the Government to spend on reducing cannabis-related harm, new economic modelling shows.
It finds the ethical structure of the proposed legislative structure will channel $675million each year into drug rehabilitation programs!
We currently spend around $150million annually on alcohol rehabilitation – THIS $675million would fund rehab not only all cannabis addiction, but it would also fund all alcohol addiction AND all drug addictions services!
Regulating the cannabis market would inject more funding into all harm minimisation programs than we have ever had.
This would be a new age of rehabilitation funding, the taxation revenue is just beyond anything NZ has ever experienced in the field of drug rehabilitation.
But it gets better.
On top of that $675million in rehabilitation programs that could fund ALL drug addiction, there is almost quarter of a billion to the State in GST, plus 5000 new full time jobs plus creating over $200million in salaries and wages plus saving millions in the judiciary and tens of millions more in the prison system!
This is how far out of whack we have allowed the moralists and prohibitionists to succeed in this country!
The alternative to the current prohibition is so good that the status quo is seen us utterly reprehensible!
If you are still against the Cannabis referendum after reading this report, then YOU are the fucking problem, not the stoners!
We should be collectively outraged that we have allowed the State to have this prohibition power for as long as they have. Cannabis is a civil rights issue, the State has crushed hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens for decades upon decades to enforce a law that was always about control and not our welfare.
How dare they and how dare we allow them to get away with it!
You can enrol on the day of the election so there are no excuses this time.
Don’t drag yourself to the ballot box comrades, march there in furious anger and tell the prohibitionists and the State to fuck off out of our collective lives!
