Brown’s cannabis bill may end up null and void

Simeon Brown’s bill proposing a crack-down on synthetic cannabis has passed it’s first reading.

The bill calls for harsher penalties on those who supply synthetic cannabis, as well for an inquiry into support for those addicted.

However, there has been a promise of a referendum for the personal use of cannabis by the end of the current government’s term.

Meaning that, in a sense, this bill, if it passes it’s third reading, but the public votes for personal use of cannabis to be legalised, than the bill may end up being null and void.

So is this bill worth the effort?
