ONE News 26 Sep 2011Family First says a call by Act Party leader Don Brash to decriminalise cannabis sends the wrong message. Act leader Don Brash is calling for the decriminalisation of cannabis, saying prohibition of the drug has not worked. Brash told TVNZ’s Q + A programme policing cannabis costs millions of taxpayer dollars and clogs up the court system. But Family First spokesman Bob McCoskrie said decriminalisation tells the public, especially younger people, that small amounts of drug use is no big deal. “Brash also misunderstands the real harm that personal consumption of the drug actually does,” McCoskrie said. He said Act should instead be calling for better treatment facilities for addiction and mental illness. McCoskrie says a zero-tolerance approach to the use of drugs combined with treatment options is a far better solution.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/brash-s-call-cannabis-dopey-and-dangerous-4419091ALSO – ACT leader questions marijuana lawsNZ Herald 25 Sep 2011Act Party leader Don Brash is calling for thought to be given to decriminalising marijuana.
