Please Explain podcast: New Zealand's vote on marijuana may spark law reform debate in AustraliaPosted by On

According to Harm Reduction Australia, New Zealand’s upcoming referendum on legalising cannabis could significantly impact drug law reform in Australia and may even trigger marijuana tourism when borders between the two countries reopen.

New Zealanders will vote in two referendums on October 17, in addition to choosing whether to return Jacinda Ardern’s Labour government to power or vote for the National Party. The second referendum will ask if assisted dying should be legalised for the terminally ill.

In this episode, senior culture writer Nathanael Cooper is joined by South East Asia correspondent James Massola to discuss how this referendum may impact Australian drug law reform.
