Ever since the announcement that we are to vote on legalising cannabis, I have been looking for the logic.
A sign from any one of the major players this somehow makes sense.
I can't find any.
I have asked.
I have asked the Prime Minister, I have asked Winston Peters, I have asked Julie Anne Genter.
Not one of them has produced a sensible logical answer as to why we are wandering down this path of inevitable social health and economic harm.
The only response seems to be, what we do now hasn't worked.
Which is true.
