Nationwide poll shows majority want cannabis laws relaxed
The Northland Age reported a new poll showing a whopping 93.2 per cent of votes in favour of relaxing cannabis laws in Aotearoa New Zealand. More than 2000 people took part in the poll run by Far North cannabis startup Te Hiku Cannabis. Of those who wanted the law changed, 64.2 per cent voting for legalisation, 35.3 per cent for decriminalisation and the remaining 0.5 per cent said they were unsure.
Respondents were also asked if cannabis was made legal should convictions be wiped for minor cannabis offences. 89.9 per cent voted yes, with around 7 per cent voting no and the remaining ‘unsure’. This poll was self-selected and not weighted for demographics. It comes as the INCB, a UN body, says legalsing cannabis fails to address health risks. But they would say that. They also called for easier access to opioids and fentanyl, so go figure.
