Green Party MP Chlöe Swarbrick announces details about the 2020 cannabis referendum.
The question in the referendum will be based on the proposed legislation, which will include rules around consumption as well as a ban on advertising.
“There will be a binding referendum on the legalization and regulation of cannabis at the 2020 general election. There will be a legal purchase age of 20 years old also because we were aware that it currently happens in the shadows and want to make sure we fold it into a regulatory regime there will be provision for personal cultivation.Chlöe Swarbrick 7 May 2019
In line with a health based approach consumption will be limited to private spaces or to those that are licensed and we are also guaranteeing that there is going to be no advertising.”
