Some good news about that shocking election: 192% increase in party vote for Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party!!! Good work dakta kiwis! OK, maybe you’re saying going from 0.25% to 0.48% aint much, and yeah you’re right. But that’s 9,516 people fighting against an oppressive, evil totalitarian waste of time racist prohibition. Freedom must come to our innocent political prisoners. However, I am growing tired of waiting so more action is needed.
Also, the only party with a greater increase was the Greens with an exactly 200% increase. Considering that the green party is powered by the awesomely intelligent and talented Metiria Turei, who is anti-prohibition, perhaps you can say this is a strong signal the public are giving the government about legalisation?
We just saw NZ’s shit-est election with the lowest ever voter turnout ever since records began back in the 1800s.
