Jacinda Ardern hints at her support for cannabis to be legalised in NZ

Jacinda Ardern may have broken her silence on whether she supports the legalisation of cannabis by tasting hemp ice cream at a high-tech food lab.

New Zealanders will decide whether recreational marijuana should be legalised and taxed in a referendum held alongside the nation's election on October 17.

Ms Ardern has kept quiet about which way she will vote in the so called 'reefer-endum', with a surprisingly blank history on the topic.

But on Thursday, the prime minister made the trip to Palmerston North, north of Wellington, to sample the hemp dessert.

'Creamy,' she said, after taking a spoonful, Stuff reported.
