About

The Make It Legal Campaign is a network of individuals and organisations campaigning for a strong YES vote in the upcoming cannabis referendum at the 2020 general election. Our purpose is to get a high percentage of voters to:
a) turn out and vote; and
b) vote YES to progressive law reform, whatever the question
 
We intend to operate as a networked campaign, working co-operatively with other groups, including other law reform groups.
Within a networked campaign, partners have opportunities to support each other’s campaign activities – mobilising cross supporter action with greater reach and engagement than an individual group could achieve alone.
The campaign will enable supporting organisations that are not traditionally cannabis law reform groups to show their support for law reform without having to run a campaign themselves.
We will work to educate the public on key points around cannabis law reform – such as the issue of whether people should be able to grow their own and what a regulated legal market might mean.
Our local teams will fundraise, educate, organise gigs and events, and carry out on-the-ground campaigning during the run up to the referendum – being a visible presence in communities to provide information to voters to help inform their voting decision.
 
Supporting organisations are welcome to join us to indicate their support for cannabis law reform – commitment is as much or as little as your organisation wants to put into it. For more information on becoming a coalition partner please contact WeCan@makeitlegal.nz
