Roderick Aldridge has by no means smoked or used cannabis in his life.
But the 80-year-old Hamilton man might be voting “yes” to legalise cannabis within the coming referendum which might be held as half of the overall election on October 17.
On Sunday, Aldridge was serving to foyer group Health Not Handcuffs ship pamphlets to Hamilton houses, from the New Zealand Drug Foundation, which supported laws to minimise the social and well being harms of cannabis.
The referendum asks whether recreational use of cannabis should become legal and the muse mentioned it supported a sure vote, to put in place well being controls round how cannabis is managed.
