A key figure in the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party is defecting to Gareth Morgan’s The Opportunities Party (TOP) and is urging members to follow him.
Abe Gray said in a statement he was stepping down as president and resigning his membership to throw in his lot with Morgan after the party’s cannabis policy launch.
Gray has written an open letter to ALCP members explaining his move.
Economist Morgan launched his drugs policy last month and said cannabis should be regulated for cultivation, sale, and personal use in New Zealand.
It’s also a policy I agree with. However it is far from the most important issue for me.
