Why are we voting yes?

Why are we voting yes?

Glad you asked! 

  • Because our cannabis laws come from the 1970s Nixon War on Drugs based on racial oppression.
  • Because Māori are three times more likely to be stopped and arrested for the same crime as Pākehā.
  • Because laws should be fair. Because patients need better access.
  • Because adults should be allowed to choose.
  • Because over 95% of people experience no issues with it.
  • Because experts – scientists, doctors, leaders, professors, social workers – have told us this is the best, smartest, safest solution.
  • Because cannabis is here to stay either way but we currently have no regulation or system.
  • Because it has worked overseas.
  • Because young minds need education and protection.
  • Because addiction is a health issue.
  • Because we will boost billions into our economy…

TO NAME A FEW…

Aucklanders! Be photographed and make your voice heard.

Aucklanders! Be photographed and make your voice heard.

The WE DO campaign has just launched and is about showing other New Zealanders that it’s OK to support this bill – We Do are looking for good people to convey that message.  We Do are asking for volunteers to be photographed for a poster campaign to show that all kinds of Kiwis back this bill because it’s the right thing to do.
 
If you live in Auckland We Do would love it if you could spare a little time to be photographed and make your voice heard in the lead-up to this crucial referendum. (Bonus: you get a sweet professional photograph of yourself, possibly with a loved one or buddy too.)

It’s what WE DO.

Please apply here before the shooting dates of August 15 and 16.
