The cannabis referendum infuriates me because it’s so bloody close.
It shouldn’t be this close dammit!
Folks, a regulated, taxed market will create $675million each year to help ALL drug rehabilitation.
It will create over a quarter of a billion in direct taxes to the state.
It will create 5000 jobs that we urgently need.
It will do more to weaken organised crime in NZ than any single thing we have ever done.
It will save $300million each year in justice and corrections.
It will end a very racist law.
It will free Police to chase actual criminals.
It will send a clear signal to the Religious Right in America that they can’t interfere in our domestic politics.
If you vote against the cannabis referendum don’t you EVER complain about lack of drug rehab, lack of jobs, overcrowded prisons or organised crime ever again!
Vote yes in the cannabis referendum.
