Dylan Kelly knows how he will vote in the upcoming cannabis referendum, and he knows how his mother Helen would have voted too.

The 28-year-old watched his mother, former Council of Trade Unions president Helen Kelly, turn to the black market to source cannabis when she was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in February 2015.

It was the only thing that gave her relief and helped her sleep at night, she told Stuff before her death.
