Green Forum on Cannabis Policy Auckland Wednesday
GREEN FORUM: Cannabis - Options for Law Reform
Wednesday 1st September 7:30 to 9:30pm FREE Ellen Melville Hall; Cnr High St and Wyndham Place, above D-72 Diner, Central Auckland
The Green Party presents a public forum on cannabis policy. Cannabis use is rising in New Zealand, despite some of the world's toughest law enforcement. Does prohibition minimise the harmful effects of using cannabis, or are there better ways for it to be controlled? What about medical marijuana and hemp?
Cannabis use and cannabis policy are controversial areas that are often surrounded by myth and distorted truths. We invite you to this forum to hear the issues, ask questions, have your say, and make an informed choice this election.
