Political Shakeup

I have been looking at the voting outcomes from yesterdays by-election in Northland (NZ).. not just a shakeup for the incumbent Govt. (lost the seat, by a big majority to a so-called minor party).. BUT:

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party candidate (Ms. Maki Herbert) got the 5th highest vote & beat two other parties who have already had MPs in the NZ parliament.

Whilst the vote for the ‘Cannabis’ party was less than 1% of the total, I think it again reminds these ‘power-brokers’ that this issue should be squarely on the agenda !
