J Day is an International day celebrating our cannabis culture and a protest against the failed War on Drugs.

Auckland J Day in Albert Park features music and speakers, on the mightly JAFA Mafia sound system, plus market stalls and information booths.

About J Day:

Are you one of NZ's half-million pot smokers, or do you know one of them? Most Kiwis support cannabis law reform. It's time to demand change! J Day is a celebration/protest - held every year since 1992 - in support of NORML's three campaign goals:

A health issue, not a crime: Cannabis consumers and producers should not be criminals. Concentrate resources on problematic abuse. Let the police focus on crime that matters.

Safe legal access to medical cannabis: Medicinal cannabis is allowed in 23 states in the USA, Israel, Netherlands, Spain, Canada etc. Why not here?

Regulate cannabis, the safer choice: Low-risk drugs like cannabis should be regulated via an adults-only, taxable market similar to that in 5 US states, Uruguay and the Netherlands, or the way alcohol is regulated here. There would be no market for synthetic alternatives if natural cannabis were legal.
