Medicinal Cannabis in NZ

The Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Act came into effect in December 2018 when the following changes came into effect:

those requiring palliation have an exception and statutory defence to the charge of possession or use of illicit cannabis

quality standards will be able to be set for medicinal cannabis products through all stages of production

Cannabidiol and any substances related to tetrahydrocannabinols that are not psychoactive are not controlled drugs

The Act is intended to improve access to quality assured medicinal cannabis based on principles of fairness, quality and safety, and compassion

Timeline for Development of the Regulations

The Minister of Health recommended the making of regulations setting quality standards for medicinal cannabis products within a year of the Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Act 2018 coming into effect.

Completion of the new regulations is expected by December 2019 with operational commencement expected early/mid-2020.
