Legalise Cannabis Victoria has called for reform of how the Victorian Legislative Council is elected.
“LCV supports the abolition of Group Voting Tickets and the introduction of a rort-free system of proportional representation” said LCP candidate for the Western Metropolitan Region David Ettershank.
“Legalise Cannabis Victoria has worked hard to negotiate preferences with other parties who will support Cannabis reform in Victoria and bring some common sense to the Cannabis debate but we don’t ‘pay to play’”
“We feel really sorry for people who think they are genuinely voting for a particular cause when the Druery business model means their preferences will be funnelled to the biggest paying minor parties”. said LCP candidate for the South-Eastern Metropolitan Region Rachel Payne
Over 600,000 Victorians over the age of 14 consumed cannabis in the last 12 months – more than one in ten- and the law treats them like they are criminals” 1
“We don’t want, and we don’t need the likes of Mr Druery or his business model.”
