The latest Cannabis Poll is out and it suggest we could beat the dirty filthy religious right prohibitionists!!!!
A new poll shows cannabis legalisation is on track to pass in the upcoming referendum, but only if Kiwis turn up to vote.
COME ON KIWIS!
We must fight the prohibitionists and those like the National Party who wish to empower Organised Crime with the status quo.
Let me tell you a wee story.
I was the co-editor of Craccum the Auckland University Student Magazine in 1993.
My co-editor and I published an infamous article called the Drug Supermarket where we noted that because cannabis was illegal, criminal gangs were moving into the upper common room and were setting up shop. One such criminal element selling drugs there was the serial rapist, the Parnell Panther, who once outed in the article, threatened to kill my co-editor who then had to go into hiding.
Oh the joys of a tertiary education. Good times, fun times.
27 years ago, it was astoundingly obvious that the prohibition of cannabis only empowered organised crime and that the hundreds of thousands of kiwis who have been arrested, hurt and damaged by this counter productive and spiteful war on drugs, especially when the drug is far less harmful than booze and tobacco, is beyond tolerance any longer.
This isn’t ultimately about markets, or marketing, or gutless cowardly politicians, it’s about getting the god damned state out of our fucking faces comrades.
We know it’s a racist system that penalises Maori and Pacifica far harsher than pakeha, this is about human rights and pushing the state out of our lives.
If you smoke weed, you shouldn’t be made a criminal. It’s as simple as that.
Advance voting for the election and referendum is open now!
Vote yes and het these prohibitionist arseholes out of our faces!
