‘A level look at all the evidence’ – Government launches cannabis info website to help voters

The Government will today launch a website that will help voters figure out whether they'll vote yes or no to cannabis in the referendum at this year's election.

The Prime Minister’s chief science adviser Juliet Gerrard, who is running the site, told TVNZ1’s Breakfast this morning the website will give a well-rounded overview of both sides of the debate.

It’s an issue that can inspire passionate opinions on either side, so in a bid to make sure New Zealanders are armed with the facts, the website will host a range of experts, including health experts, addiction experts and scientists, as well as the most up-to-date research and international evidence.

“This was actually a request from the Prime Minister, who thought that it was really important that we put together an expert panel, not to make recommendations this time, but to enable people to make their own decisions by giving a level look at all the evidence,” Dr Gerrard said.
