There are many possible paths to reforming New Zealand's outdated drug law. The ideas we've presented are based on solid evidence and public health principles. 

To ensure Whakawātea te Huarahia - A Model Drug Law to 2020 and beyond is as as good as it can be, please tell us what you think. We welcome all constructive feedback. 

These are the sorts of questions we'd like to hear from you about.

  • Are our proposals workable?
  • What parts would you change and why?

As well as commenting below, we will be bringing as many voices together as possible this year to develop consensus around a workable model. We’ll be holding community hui and talking to iwi, politicians, service providers, people who use drugs and many others. Watch this space.

An updated version of Whakawātea te Huarahi will be released in 2018.
