Currently, key lawmakers and industry leaders in New Zealand’s burgeoning medicinal cannabis industry are divided over whether the plant should be legalized. While there are no plans to enter the recreational market, one company says New Zealand’s medical profession isn’t ready for legalization. Others say Kiwis are already using illicit cannabis, and the country needs a regulated market because prohibition has caused more societal harm than good. In October New Zealanders are set to vote on the Cannabis Legalization and Control Bill, which has been written to give Kiwis an idea of how the law for recreational cannabis might look. Greg Misson, chief executive of medicinal cannabis company Eqalis, says New Zealand’s medical profession is not ready for legalization.
