Legal challenge to cannabis referendum result

Newshub reports:

A legal bid is underway to get the results of the thrown out.

A group of more than 350 people is asking the High Court to void the vote on the Cannabis and Control Bill, claiming poor and inaccurate information generated confusion among voters.

It also claims the Electoral Commission reinforced that misinformation.

The yes groupies are starting to remind me of the remoaners on the Brexit result in the UK – they just couldn’t accept they lost, so they blame everyone else.

Drug reform advocate Blair Anderson is one of the people taking the case. He told Checkpoint New Zealanders heard far too much from the “no” vote during the campaign and said there was a failure to correct misinformation.

Good God. They’re saying the referendum should be void because people with an opposing view to them got airtime.
