Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne is undertaking a review of the national drug policy and drug laws and says while there’s been no relaxation of laws on recreational drug use, he’s open to more medicinal products being available if they undergo a comprehensive testing regime.

There is one product on the market currently that contains cannabis derivatives – it’s called Sativex and 48 Kiwis are allowed to use it.

  1. I suffer from epilepsy i’ve had it for 20 years, tried every single drug yet they still did not control the seizures.. So i started having some oil every night and am proud to say i haven’t had a seizure for almost 1 year. So yes it should be legalised for medicinal use. Why put so many people in jail for using it, what a waste of money to have them in jail in the first place… Just out right dumb
