Legalise Marijuana for Medicinal and Recreational Purposes NZ

Marijuana is proven to have beneficial effects for a myriad of health conditions, such as Asthma, Epilepsy, Cancer, MS, Autism, AIDS and Multiple Sclerosis to name a few conditions. Personally, i suffer from asthma and i find that after using marijuana, my breathing has got better. This is due to the fact that marijuana opens the airways, so you don't have to use your inhaler as much!!!!!! Also, you don't get any of the nasty side effects that you do using conventional medecine. Why should people suffer needlessly with all these benefits that marijuana has?!!!!!! New Zealand has one of the highest arrest rates outside of the United States for marijuana possession. Sativex and Elixinol are two Cannabis based drugs that are proven to be effective in treating these conditions, yet Pharmac won't fully fund them, which makes them well out of the budget of most people!!!!!
The Misuse of Drugs Act 1975 should be amended so that people aren't criminalised or persecuted for using a natural medicine!!!!!! Labour, The Greens and ACT (apart from Roger Douglas) are all in favour of legalising Marijuana for Medicinal Purposes, however, National, United Future, the Progressive Party and the Maori Party are all opposed to it!!!!!! Please share this petition with family and friends, and promote it on Facebook groups, etc!!!!! This petition will be hand delivered to Peter Dunne!!!!!! Stop wasting taxpayers' money on medicinal-based bills, and legalise it completely making it R18, so that only those over the age of 18 can buy or sell it. Personally i prefer recreational marijuana.
