Great to see CBD having some success.
Perhaps with a NO result and continued patience this country has the potential to be a lead supplier in these medications.
Is drug abuse the same as addiction? Synthetic weed didn’t seem that addictive but caused a shed load of mental health issues within my family.
I often wonder what would have happened back in the day if the government had gone with legal pot instead of synths as our countries first experiments with commercialising recreational drug use.

Hi Dylan that is good to hear. Am also very glad we are not having a cannibal referendum this year :)
On reflection, the worst I can find in a sentence that begins with “I will leave it to you” is an unbecoming tone – hardly an example of unethical conduct.
What I find odd, is that the faith I had in the New Zealand medical community which led me to consider voting NO on one referendum has just now been eroded by reading their 'knee jerk' position on the other referendum.
It is a touch ironic that the medical profession and their failure to successfully adopt cannabis for health purposes is the primary reason I will likely be switching my vote to YES for more cannabis law reform and find myself even more out of my depth on the subject of end of life issues.
Is that last sentence really necessary?
NZMA code of ethics states:
42. Doctors should avoid impugning the reputations of colleagues.
Sorry for being pedantic, I have just been reading up on the latest code of ethics in relation to another referendum which could be argued seeks to undermine the medical association and the ethical standards which they hold themselves to.
I might also add that Dr Hotu’s claim to be a GP doesn’t seem to be true.
It does seem a bit odd to not have a practice, he only makes house calls.
Lovely building, shame about the tenant. I remember being duped into an office above Queen Street when I was a lad.
The pro’s and con’s of the cannabis referendum needs to be informed by science and evidence
I disagree. The referendum is about justice. Nobody is suggesting recreational drug use is in anyway scientifically good for peace of mind, sense of well being, quality parenting, better driving, improved coordination, short sentences, logical discourse, appetite control, proof reading....
