Having met with the Jersey Liberal Conservatives last month, End Cannabis Prohibition Jersey met with members of Reform Jersey this week to present our Recommendations for Reform.
Our presentation was well received by Reform Jersey, with party members asking many pertinent questions to better understand the subject. We left the meeting feeling hopeful that reference to cannabis reform will be included in their party manifesto.
Next week, ECPJ shall be meeting with members of The Progress Party and then the following week we are due to meet with Jersey Alliance.
We have also scheduled our first meeting with one of the new independent candidates, Dr Helen Miles, for next week.
Engagement with a number of the independent candidates seeking election has so far proved difficult, as we mentioned in last week's update.
The majority of the new candidates standing for election have yet to publish an email address by which the ECPJ and others may contact them.
Of those candidates with published email addresses, we have needed to persevere and send follow up emails, which has proven to be fruitful in some cases. We will likely have to proceed to phoning others next week in order to open a dialogue with them.
In other news, the End Cannabis Prohibition Jersey Twitter account reached 100 followers this week, which is a nice milestone in our campaign.
We have also created a PDF poster for the ECPJ campaign, which our supporters can print out and display in workplaces and communal areas.
