I just got this pic. from another site.. the current estimated, annual cost of Cannabis Prohibition in Aotearoa/NZ !
btw; In case you dont know who the man is: he is the current ‘Leader of the opposition’ (National Party NZ) who appear to still be staunchly, opposed to cannabis/other drug law reform; saying that IF they return to power this year, (Election 2020) they are not bound to implement, the result of the Reeferendum, if it is a majority ‘YES’ vote, in support of Cannabis law reform !
It seems they would prefer to continue throwing the cash at supporting the growth of the ‘Cops/Prison Prohibition Industry‘ rather than looking at other viable options.. as in many other OECD countries: Canada, USA states, Aust. states, much of EU etc. etc. etc.
