SAY NOPE TO DOPE: Vincent's story – As an ex-cannabis user, I'll be voting NO.

Starting off with cannabis as a young person in West Auckland, Vincent’s weekend use became everyday use. And then became all day use. He’d do what was called wake and bake & go to work high. And then get high at lunchtime. And get high when he got home. It was a gateway drug to LSD, methamphetamine, cocaine, synthetic cannabis and opioid abuse.
“As an ex cannabis user, I’ll be voting no. I do want this cycle to stop. I don’t want my children to have to go through what I had. I don’t want my children to be told that cannabis is safe. I want my kids to have every opportunity that I should have got.”
“The destruction of relationships, the laziness & procrastination, the loss of dreams & ambitions & opportunities that go with it. I love being drug free – I wish I’d done it a lot sooner.”
“I’d encourage everybody else that doesn’t use cannabis and doesn’t want to see the detrimental effects on society to vote no.”
