Charitable organization Family First has erected controversial billboards and a message on their Facebook page.
Are you ready for the Legalisation of Marijuana debate? We are! Our first billboard has just gone up in Christchurch (see image), with more to come. And we’ve just released a stack of resources for you and your family which will help you campaign with us against any attempts to legalise marijuana (and ultimately other drugs, according to pro-marijuana groups) in New Zealand. Join us as we say nope to dope. Legalising marijuana for recreational use will be a disaster for families and turn straight people gay!Family First New Zealand
I’m no expert, but I think we can probably file the claim that weed “chemically induces homosexuality” alongside evangelical Christians insisting that humans and dinosaurs co-existed under “whacky shit that very religious people say”.
Or can we?
In early 2015 there was a big media kerfuffle about the idea of “Highsexuality”, where normally straight men experience uncontrollable attraction to other men after smoking weed. There were articles, opinion pieces and lots of furious commenting under Youtube videos.
