    I think that is the best way to go. I'll be voting for it.

    Very funny. A number of European countries have had that sort of thing for ages, they don't have an increase in drug users nor other dire events.

    If you are going to make 1 drug legal, you should also make them ALL legal.
    All the same arguments will apply to every other drug.
    Im not saying keeping everything illegal is the best choice, but lets not single out cannabis for special treatment .

    I know what will happen if you make it easier to get .

    NZ has a long history of drug abuse (boooze)
    We cant compare NZ to other countries , we just arnt the same .

    .
    I don't think so.
    And one is currently legal - alcohol.

    Cannabis and say heroin...can't be compared.

    Erm - we have already had a needle exchange programme for more than 30 years!
    (In fact, I think NZ was the first in the world)

    "The needle exchange programme consists of 20 dedicated exchanges, 1 mobile exchange, and 197 pharmacies and alternative outlets.

    We now distribute over 3 million needles and syringes each year through a national network of dedicated outlets stretching from Kaitaia to Invercargill and a comprehensive network of pharmacies.

    There are five trusts responsible for the operational delivery of services in their respective regions and a national trust that provides leadership and national co-ordination for the programme as a whole."
