The government have announced plans to hold a referendum in 2020 to remove restrictions around cannabis use. The public will be asked to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to a question which asks them whether they wish to enact a bill which would legalise the use of cannabis. But what happens after that? Justice Minister Andrew Little has released a document outlining how the proposed referendum will play out, as well as how the results of the referendum will be used to create a bill enacting this decision. Craccum saves you a reading and summarises the document for you.
