NZ Cannabis Referendum – #1 : Little assumes we are all stoned as he brazenly misleads with his referendum announcement

The Inquiring Mind

Dave Granlund takes a look

dave_granlund_cannabis

Given that this is a topic that will be an ongoing political issue in NZ for some considerable time – this is the first in a series of posts about this issue and related matters

So Andrew Little has released the approach being taken regarding the cannabis referendum

There are several immediate concerns which come to mind and no doubt as things are clarified over the coming months some will prove to be unfounded. Though I will be pleasantly surprised if that proves to be the case.
