Consultation

NZNO seeks your feedback on the Misuse of Drugs Amendment Bill

NZNO seeks your feedback on the Misuse of Drugs Amendment Bill.

Crucially, this bill aims to improve the way Police use discretion for drug offences and to treat drug use/addiction as more of a health issue.

The Bill aims to:

  • make the two main synthetics, 5F-ADB and AMB-Fubinaca, Class A drugs;
  • target suppliers through  increased penalties for makers and suppliers of synthetic drugs and
  • give police more discretion to either prosecute users or consider whether directing them to health and therapeutic services would be more beneficial.

You can download the Bill from the Misuse of Drugs Amendment page.
