ACTivists To Support Cannabis Law Reform
ACTivists Media Advisory 3 March 2001
ACTivists, the unofficial youth wing of the ACT party, are to sign the Coalition for Cannabis Law Reform Accord, opposing the prohibition of cannabis, this Saturday.
Gavin Middleton, President of ACTivists, will sign the Accord at 2.30pm in Frank Kitts Park, Wellington, amid J Day celebrations.
Mr Middleton said "cannabis reform is a major issue among young New Zealanders, and ACTivists see that the current system of prohibition is not minimising potential harm to either cannabis users or the general public. The current law of prohibition is also an unacceptable breach of individual liberty and should be changed to remove the threat of criminality from responsible users."
ACTivists will also be present informally at other J Day events around the country.
