New Zealand Makes Head Way Towards Medical Cannabis

The Parliament of New Zealand voted last week on a new bill that would amends the country’s Misuse of Drugs Act of 1975, which would then open up medicinal cannabis for terminally ill patients to consume and possess.

The new bill would set regulations in place for “products manufactured, imported, and supplied under license…”, as well as set legislation in place to declassify Cannabidiol (CBD) as a controlled substance. CBD has recently gain global attention when the World Health Organization released a report asking for the compound to be declassified as a schedule 1 drugs around the world.

 

This move is seen as very progressive for a country that seems at least decades before a possible vote on cannabis legalization. The bill has now been given to the Parliament Health Committee for further discussion on the matter.
