Cannabis Law Reform

The Opportunities Party is under taking a member-led process to determine our position on Cannabis Law Reform. Members have indicated this is an issue they would like looked at first and foremost. This is a chance to develop a new policy but also a chance for us to ‘walk the talk’ of direct democracy as set out in our TOP Policy #4: Democracy Reset. It also gives us an opportunity to road test this approach for the future as we will be using a direct democracy approach to reform our party’s constitution.

Direct democracy doesn’t mean a referendum, nor does it mean consensus. It can take a number of forms depending on the issue. Regardless, The Opportunities Party won’t take on a policy position that isn’t evidence based. Involving people is fantastic for deciding our values, but evidence is determined by expert input. This process will need to bring the two together.
