Most New Zealanders support decriminalising cannabis, poll claims

After last year’s failed referendum there’s now this….

The NZ Herald reports

A new poll suggests most New Zealanders support decriminalising cannabis.

Just over 48 per cent of voters supported legalising cannabis in a referendum held last year.

A poll conducted by market research firm UMR for the Helen Clark Foundation found an additional 20 per cent voted no but said they think cannabis should be decriminalised.

The poll was of 833 people who voted in the referendum; 49 per cent were in favour of legalisation – mirroring the actual vote – while 30 per cent thought the current law should stay the same or get tougher.

This makes a total of 69 per cent who either supported legalisation or would support decriminalisation.
