Pacific Island Passes Cannabis Legalisation Bill

Mana By-election candidate for the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party, Julian Crawford, is welcoming news that cannabis legalisation is taking hold in the pacific region.

The Marianas Islands, last week, became the first pacific country to pass a cannabis legalisation bill through parliament. The bill passed despite threats from the US to revoke over US$10 million in aid to the Islands.

"Cannabis Legalisation in the Marianas will significantly boost tourism in the region as well as undermining the black market profits associated with Cannabis," he said.

Mr Crawford hopes that other pacific islands will follow suit once they see the profound economic and social benefits of cannabis reform. "I believe that a prohibition free zone could be established in the pacific just as was done with the nuclear issue. New Zealand could play a key role in establishing such a zone," he said.

The Mana electorate has a very high pacific population as well as soaring levels of unemployment. "I hope that voters in Mana will support the Cannabis Party at the ballot box once they see their pacific neighbours endorsing legalisaton, regulation and taxation of cannabis as a way to boost their economies," he concluded.

this article is kind of fucked, because the "Marianas Islands" is more a geographical designation like "North America".  And not a political entity like the US. 

this article seems better researched:  http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/2010/nov/12/marianas_islands_marijuana_legal

I hate the u.s. Always trying to keep control over everyone. It is none of the u.s's business what the fuck the pacific islands do, no matter if they are deep into politics or not. The u.s. needs stopped before they take over everyone(the broken and lawless united states government and foreigners)
