New Zealand legalizes medical cannabis, sets sight on recreational

New Zealand passed a law after its third reading Tuesday that allows thousands of patients to legally use medical cannabis, as the country gears up for a referendum on recreational cannabis.

The bill, called the Misuse of Drugs (Medical Cannabis) Amendment, removes restrictions on medical cannabis. While it will take up to a year for regulations to be put in place for patients with conditions such as chronic pain, the bill provides legal defence for terminally ill patients to consume cannabis as soon as it has received royal assent.

Health Minister Dr. David Clark said that …
