Banning Kronic is not the answer

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party (ALCP) candidate in the Te Tai
Tokerau by-election Maki Herbert says banning Kronic would only
strengthen the black-market trade in drugs.

“The Government created a class-D for regulated, R18 products,” Ms
Herbert said.

“They should give class-D a fair go.”

Bringing cannabis into this category would reduce demand for synthetic
cannabinoids, Ms Herbert said.

“Banning Kronic will only drive more kiwis into the black-market drugs
trade,” she said.

“We should protect our mokopuna from criminal elements.”

Ms Herbert has challenged the other candidates in the Te Tai Tokerau
by-election to express their views on cannabis.

So far none of the other candidates have stated their views on cannabis
or Kronic publically, she said.
