I went to my local chemist shop this morning.. to get a prescription filled. I asked the chemist ‘Have you heard any updates on medicinal cannabis/CBDs etc. (in NZ) ?’ He replied.. (paraphrased) ‘It will still likely be many years away’
I said that Aotearoa/NZ is increasingly looking like ‘the back of the pack, in the OECD on this issue’
He replied ‘Only a few USA states & a couple of other countries have allowed legal med-use’
I then ‘rattled off’.. ‘what about: Canada, over half USA states, much of EU/UK, some states in Aust., some Sth. American countries, parts of Asia & Africa (Sth Africa, most recently decrim. use) etc. etc.. he just shrugged him shoulders & said “I was plainly WRONG !”
I said there is plenty of evidence on the internet.. a bit of research only is needed, to confirm it
It seems that Misinfo. & Apathy is still widely at the front of mind/attitude.. with many in Aotearoa/NZ ?
