Cannabis: Govt proposes legalising 14g purchase a day

From Checkpoint, 5:27 pm on 3 December 2019

The government is proposing to make it legal to buy a maximum of 14 grams of cannabis a day.

That's one of the proposals in legislation unveiled on Tuesday afternoon by the Justice Minister, Andrew Little.

Voters will be asked a simple yes/no referendum question at next year's election, and if the majority say yes, then Parliament will pass legislation accordingly.

Mr Little has just held a press conference and RNZ political reporter Jo Moir has the details.
