Growing support for cannabis law reform

The Herald reports on polling Curia did for the NZ Drug Foundation. They show support has increased significantly for cannabis law reform.

Support is overwhelming for not criminalising medical use, and is also very strong for personal use. There isn’t support though for selling.

The Herald reports further:

Not surprisingly 100 per cent of Green Party voters support the use of cannabis for pain relief (88 per cent last year), 91 per cent of Labour supporters (up from 78 per cent), 86 per cent of New Zealand First supporters (up from 77 per cent) and 80 per cent of National (up from 78 per cent).

80% of National voters support legalisation or decriminalisation of cannabis for pain relief. So the only issue should be how to do it, not whether to do it.
