Cannabis legalization in New Zealand

Cannabis legalization

When we talk about the status of cannabis legalization in New Zealand, we come to know that the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975 considers cannabis an illegal drug. Individuals who use or supply cannabis get punishment according to their laws and regulations.

Considering the prospects of cannabis, Helen Clark Foundation has released a report. This report stands as an advocate for legalizing and regulating cannabis. Furthermore, there is going to be a referendum next year that will decide the future of cannabis in New Zealand. Hence, the people of New Zealand have the opportunity to decide which direction to follow.

It is an obvious fact that the effect on people’s behavior is least by the fear of criminal sanctions. They do whatever they like or want to do. Despite the fact that cannabis is illegal in New Zealand, reports from longitudinal studies indicate that 80% people living in New Zealand have tried cannabis at least once by the age of 25.

Therefore, the approaches of prohibition have not eliminated and will not eliminate cannabis usage and supply in New Zealand or any other country where its consumption is exhibited.

Less harmful than alcohol and tobacco

According to the British scientist David Nutt, former chair of the Advisory Council, on the Misuse of Drugs, the use of cannabis is really less damaging to human health as compared to other drugs like alcohol and tobacco.

This is the reason many countries have legalized the usage and supply of cannabis. Uruguay, Canada and many other states in the United States Of America have legalized the use and supply of cannabis.

Ethnic disparity

Without the legalization of cannabis, considerable ethnic disparities in prosecution and arrest for cannabis-related business are also likely to continue.

Certainly, the current system in the New Zealand relating to drugs is terribly unfair for the Indigenous people, Maori. They carry an unequal and unjust burden of the convictions and sentences for drug-related offending. The Indigenous people, Maori are almost 15% of the total population of New Zealand. Yet Maori between the ages of 17 to 24 make up 37% of all the prosecutions and convictions for drug possession which is totally unfair to them.

But the positive sign is that the ruling party of the New Zealand is eager to lessen the number of prisoners. They can achieve this objective in a moderate way with the legalization of cannabis in the country.

This is the right time for the people of New Zealand to admit and accept the prevalent consumption of cannabis in the region and to regulate and legalize it systematically. They achieve no productive aim by declaring its status illegal. There is a dire need of cannabis legalization.

There would be many benefits if the New Zealanders vote in favor of the cannabis legalization in the upcoming referendum.  It would not only be a positive sign for the social justice but also for a balanced society. It would also play a vital role in diminishing the country’s large prison population. Cannabis related health issues would also be resolved.
