start the conversation

I read that there is to be a ‘Great debate’ in the Auckland Town Hall; Monday 27/6/16.. at 7pm

‘Key public figures are set to assemble at the Auckland Town Hall next
week to host a public discussion on the impacts of cannabis laws in NZ

‘The launch of the “Let’s Start The Conversation” campaign – a national
vehicle to create informed community discussion and debate around the
impacts of current cannabis laws – kicks off on Monday, June 27th with a
Town Hall Assembly in Auckland officially endorsed by Auckland
University of Technology (AUT) and the New Zealand Criminal Bar
Association .’

‘Chaired by Russell Brown and featuring Helen Kelly, Professor Max Abbott
(AUT), Warren Young (New Zealand Law Commission, Ret.), Dr. Chris
Wilkins (Massey SHORE) and others, the event follows on from the Great
Marijuana Debate chaired by the late Sir Peter Williams on 26th Oct 1984.’

‘In the three decades since, NZ has seen some major progressions in law
and human rights including; mental health law reform, homosexual law
reform, prostitution law reform and abortion law reform. However despite
recommendations from many official committees over this time, most
recently the Law Commission in 2011, there has been no significant
changes to cannabis legislation.’

‘We as the New Zealand public need to sit down and have an open
discussion about what our future cannabis laws should look like and what
we hope to achieve. Please join us as we start this very important
