The Herald reports:
Little was asked if Labour would decriminalise cannabis during an interview on Victoria University student radio station Salient FM.
“We will look at holding a referendum about it… we want to make sure there is a good information campaign about it, and have a referendum about it and let people decide,” he said.
Sounds like a definite pledge. Talking about an information campaign and letting the people decide.
When asked about the comments by Newshub today, Little said holding a referendum was possible, but down-played the likelihood, saying it was “simply not a priority” for Labour.
And a different tune to a different audience. Not exactly straight talking.
