The whole thing about changing drug law in Aotearoa/NZ is increased in difficulty, because we do not have state or provincial legislatures (as in Aust. Canada & USA, where laws have been amended – Med-use & Decrim. adults use at that level).
If we could get laws passed to allow the current ‘local councils’ (provincial) to enact a by-laws to include; regulation of cannabis.. I think it would be so much simpler !
The other issue is the effective ZERO-TOLERANCE stance that this current right-wing Govt., running the country at this time, are ramming onto us !!
Who is pulling their strings ? 😦
