Justice Minister Andrew Little has confirmed the New Zealand cannabis referendum will be held at the 2020 election, and it will be binding.

Previous research by Massey University shows 76 percent of people are in favour of legalising marijuana in some way.

Last month, the Drug Foundation brought in top economist Shamubeel Eaqub to analyse the potential benefit of legalising marijuana. His analysis showed a reform could net New Zealand $240 million in tax revenue.
