Newshub: High profile kiwis advocating for cannabis legislation change

Numerous high profile New Zealanders are backing a new campaign advocating for Kiwis to see the positives in the new cannabis legislation.

The ‘Vote yes – On our terms’ campaign was launched on Tuesday by The Drug Foundation to educate Kiwis about the Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill.

The campaign has launched a series of videos featuring former police detective Tim McKinnel, law lecturer Khylee Quince and Ecostore founders Malcolm and Melanie Rands, and supported by former Prime Minister Helen Clark.

McKinnel talked to The AM Show on Tuesday about why he thinks it is important for the legislation to change.

“The system we have now is a complete and utter failure. It discriminates, the law is unevenly applied, and I think it is time for a change,” he said.
