UK NI: CISTA: The region's first Pro-Drug Reform political party
Friday 29 Apr 2016
A statement from the newest poliitcal party in northern Ireland read: “This year we bare witness to the region’s first Pro-Drug Reform political party running for election to the Assembly in Stormont.
“The party is called CISTA N.I. (Cannabis IS Safer Than Alcohol) and they now have four candidates standing for election in the Newry and Armagh, West Tyrone, Upper Bann, and Foyle areas as of Friday 8th April. CISTA proposes a new approach to drug reform, starting with cannabis, one that is evidence-based, cross-party, humane and non-partisan. “Our proposals, upon implementation, will do less harm, reduce human suffering and minimise the damage caused to the victims of drug-related crime and consumers of drugs.”
“Emmet Crossan, well known and respected in his own right as a custom motorcycle engineer, bespoke artist, musician and community organiser, has now been nominated to stand as candidate for election to the assembly this coming May. Emmet and his team in Newry and Armagh pride themselves on differing from the norm when it comes to politics in Northern Ireland. The staff and committee members are not your typical politicians. This branch is a collective of likeminded individuals who oppose the current voting trends and harmful drug laws in Northern Ireland.
