I would not legalise cannabis.
I would definitely decriminalise all drugs (but not drug related criminal activity e.g. dealing, driving under the influence etc). As someone who works in in the AOD field I believe decriminalisation would allow more people to come forward for help without fear of prosecution. NZ has enough legal drugs in alcohol and nicotine without adding another. I would support a well regulated medical marijuana stance (i.e. reputable medical professionals). In the recreational market NZ does need cannabis, as in this form it is not harmless- particularly for those with mental health issues.
