Resolutions of the 2018 Cannabis Referendum Conference, Wellington

Resolutions of the 2018 Cannabis Referendum Conference, Wellington

Resolutions of the Cannabis Referendum Conference, held at the James Cook Hotel, Wellington, on Friday 9 November 2018.

This Conference:

Commends the Coalition Government for its intention to hold a referendum on the legal status of cannabis at or before the next election.

Expects that all political parties and all Members of Parliament commit to enacting the outcomes of the referendum in good faith.

Proposes that the referendum be worded to test public support for two separate questions: that adults be allowed to grow and possess cannabis for personal use, and be allowed to purchase cannabis and cannabis products from licensed premises.

Calls for a properly resourced public discussion to provide impartial and accurate information to help the public make an informed decision.
