By Aaron Humes: The Opposition United Democratic Party says it “unreservedly” supports the call for a referendum on the legalization of marijuana.

Previously, former Cabinet Minister Elodio Aragon, Jr., had publicly warned of the Government’s moves to legalize the drug through cultivation legislation in an amendment to the Misuse of Drugs Act, since split into separate bills, the other of which formalizes a ‘cannabis industry.’

While not officially confirmed, it is believed the churches are trying to start a signature drive for a petition to trigger the referendum in the coming days. They would need approximately 18,669 registered voters from each of the 31 constituencies to qualify.

The UDP says it obeys its guiding principle to “heed the will of the majority of citizens we have sworn to serve,” and so the people must decide.
