Cannabis: Fighting for facts ahead of referendum

From Checkpoint, 5:40 pm on 13 September 2019

The government and the Drug Foundation say they are committed to keeping the public informed ahead of the cannabis referendum, so that fear mongering and fake news is kept to a minimum.

New Zealanders will vote on whether to legalise marijuana in a referendum at next year's election.

MPs and the Foundation spoke at a symposium on drug law reform at Parliament on Friday.

RNZ political reporter Charlie Dreaver was there.
