Cannabis debate round two: Nandor and Robson

Cannabis debate round two: Nandor and Robson

Green MP Nandor Tanczos travels to Progressive MP Matt Robson's home turf to debate cannabis law reform in Auckland this Thursday evening, November 27.

The debate, 'Should Cannabis be Decriminalised', will be held at the Otahuhu Town Hall, 10 High Street Otahuhu, and will begin at 7.30pm.

Matt Robson is the second Progressive MP to debate Nandor, the Green spokesperson for Cannabis Law Reform, after Progressive leader Jim Anderton took up Nandor's challenge to discuss the issue with any MP, any time.

Nandor will face Mr Anderton again on December 3 in the Wellington electorate of Ohariu-Belmont. Peter Dunne, the elected representative of Ohariu-Belmont who has made continued prohibition of cannabis a non-negotiable bottom-line for his party, has continually refused to debate Nandor on the cannabis issue.
