Say Nope to Dope is a project of a group of organisations and individuals. We oppose any attempt to decriminalise or legalise marijuana. Drug use is both a criminal and a health issue, but any proposal to go soft on drug use, drug growing and drug dealing at any level should be completely rejected. Maintaining its illegality but using a smart arrest policy combined with the coercion of the law is the correct response to drug use. Drug use is a major health issue, and that’s why the role of the law is so important. This is not a ‘war on drugs’ – this is a defence of our brains and health. People should always come before profits. We should say NO to Big Marijuana in New Zealand.
