NZ Herald: Helen Clark urges Kiwis to vote ‘yes’ on legalising personal use of drug

Former Prime Minister Helen Clark is encouraging Kiwis to vote "yes" as part of a new campaign aimed at the large chunk of voters who are undecided.

The Drug Foundation launches its “Vote Yes – On Our Terms” campaign today, featuring Clark and others including child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr Hinemoa Elder, former police detective Tim McKinnel, law lecturer Khylee Quince and Ecostore founders Malcolm and Melanie Rands.

Each outlines the reasons why they’ll vote for change. Clark isn’t a supporter of cannabis itself but says keeping it illegal and unregulated only adds to harm and wastes resources; Elder likes that a regulated system would control the drug’s potency and quality.
