Using cannabis for pain caused by sports injuries
One of our followers on facebook messaged us…
I used to think that cannabis legalisation was just for stoners.

With your help Make It Legal can change the law. Every little action helps us to legalise cannabis. Here are some things you can do to help.
Spread the Word

Direct people to the official Referendum page that has all the detail on the Cannabis Legalisation & Control Bill.
All voting and enrollment details can be found on the vote.nz page

Put yourself in my shoes.
Vote yes to an age limit and to get rid of the illicit market.

People tend to think of prohibition as the ultimate form of regulation when in fact it represents the abdication of regulation with criminals filling the void.
