Marihuana use in New Zealand by Leonard Mark McFerran Download PDF EPUB FB2

A former New York Times journalist has warned New Zealand against legalising recreational cannabis, saying its risks have been "substantially understated". Alex Berenson is the author of a Author: Mark Quinlivan. About marijuana in New Zealand [R Rose] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : R Rose.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: McFerran, Leonard Mark. Marihuana use in New Zealand. [Dunedin]: Medical Research Council of New Zealand, Marijuana use in New Zealand dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, when it was both inexpensive and widely available.

Known then as "Indian hemp", and not classed as a poison or subject to customs duties, the leaf and resin were commonly used by doctors, nurses and midwives, and often included in drug companies' products (Yska ).

Cannabis is widely available in New Zealand. 12% of New Zealanders used cannabis in the past 12 months (Health Survey) By the age of 21, 80% of New Zealanders have tried cannabis at least once.

And 10% developed a pattern of heavy use (Dunedin and Christchurch Longitudinal Studies). Cannabis is the most widely available illegal drug in New Zealand.

The plants contain the active ingredient THC - the same compound that produces the "high" when smoking the drug. The more THC in a plant, the stronger its effects when consumed. The drug's manufacture Author: Zane Small. Summary. The /13 New Zealand Health Survey (NZHS) provides valuable information about cannabis use by adults aged 15 years and over.

It builds upon and adds value to the findings of the /08 New Zealand Alcohol and Drug Use Survey report on cannabis. By the time they eight out of 10 young New Zealanders have used cannabis. Ten per cent use it often enough to be dependent. What is emerging from groundbreaking research published this week is that despite a growing teenage belief that dope delivers a harmless high, young regular tokers may.

Answer 1 of What are the laws on medical/recreational marijuana in New zealand. I live in Los Angeles and it's pretty much legal and easily accessible.

What Alex Berenson’s new book gets wrong about marijuana, psychosis, and violence. The book, Tell Your Children, has received a lot of media attention, but. According to the health ministry, 11% of New Zealanders use cannabis at least once a year and 44% of those people report using it for medicinal purposes.

Green party. More than 1, study participants from New Zealand were tested for IQ at age 13 - likely before any significant marijuana use - and again at age All.

Marijuana use is common in New Zealand and police largely turn a blind eye to small, recreational use of the drug, with some politicians even admitting to using it.

In New Zealand, possession of small amounts of cannabis can attract a maximum penalty of $ or 3 months, compared to ‘decriminalised’ amounts (in New Zealand dollars) of $5 to $23 in the Netherlands, $70 in South Australia, $ in the Australian Capital Territory, and $ in.

Marijuana comes from the Indian hemp plant, which has been cultivated through the ages. Hemp was used in ancient China for making paper and also utilized extensively for the production of rope. It was used so widely for rope and cord manufacturing that hemp plants were a part of most farmsteads in North America in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Cannabis is already the third most popular recreational drug in New Zealand, despite harsh laws against its use. Hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders smoke it responsibly. Our public policies should reflect this reality, not deny it. In addition, cannabis is far less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco.

Putting that aside, there are many reasons why New Zealand should allow raw pharmaceutical cannabis and products derived from cannabis as normal prescription medications. There is plenty of evidence that cannabis can alleviate pain, combat nausea and loss appetite, act as an anticonvulsant.

This is a very hard question to answer. We’re only a decade or so into the widespread recreational use of high-potency marijuana. Maybe cannabis opens the door to other drugs, but only after prolonged use. Or maybe the low-potency marijuana of years past wasn’t a gateway, but today’s high-potency marijuana is.
