The Cannabis Party has officially opened its candidate selection pool for the 2017 general election.

The party's president Abe Gray said they would be standing candidates in electorates throughout New Zealand.

"Anyone who is passionate about the legal use of cannabis for medical, recreational or industrial purposes should think about standing," he said.

"We will be announcing some well known New Zealanders as candidates in the near future."

Potential candidates just need to become paid up members of The Cannabis Party, if they haven't done so already.

The Cannabis Party is the only party to contest every election and by-election since MMP began in 1996.
