Photo: Getty ImagesNew Zealanders have been given a first glimpse at what they will be voting for in next year's cannabis referendum. The Government today announced the draft Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill, designed to govern the recreational cannabis market should it come into effect. The draft legislation goes on to prohibit the consumption of cannabis in public spaces, limiting use to private homes and licensed premises. The draft legislation also provides that alcohol and tobacco cannot be sold on premises where cannabis is sold or consumed. They will be offered two responses: 1) Yes, I support the proposed Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill; or 2) No, I do not support the proposed Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill.
