I read that the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis party (ALCP) have announced they are standing a candidate in the Mt. Albert by-election in February. This was triggered by a current MP resigning from the position. The person standing has a profile as a radio DJ on a nation-wide station. He is calling for the referendum on Cannabis laws, should the party get into parliament in the near future.
btw; the Prime minister today, announced that the country will go to a General Election on 23 September 2017
