Draft Cannabis Legislation and Control Bill

NZNO is seeking informal feedback on the first draft Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill

This is a first draft which the Government has published at this point to ensure that New Zealanders are informed about the direction being taken and the decisions that have been made to date.

A final draft of the Bill will be available later this year, and this is the version that will be voted on in the referendum. If more than 50% of the vote is 'Yes', after the election the incoming Government may introduce a Bill to Parliament that would make recreational use of cannabis legal.

Please send feedback to by 16 March 2020.
