      New Zealand will hold a referendum on whether to legalise cannabis for recreational use at the general election in 2020, a week after legalising the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

      The governing Labour party promised the Green party they would hold a national referendum on legalising the drug, as part of the confidence and supply agreement between the two.

      Cannabis is widely consumed in New Zealand with police largely turning a blind eye to small-scale, personal use.
