I urge you to approve CBD and other medicinal cannabis products under sec. 23(1) Medicines Act.

Dear Minister,

I urge you to approve NZ sourced safe affordable CBD and other medicinal cannabis products using your new public interest discretion under s23(1) of the Medicines Act (as amended on 19 May 2021).

The public wants safe affordable access to CBD and other natural products. We are tired of your bureaucratic red tape and excuses for delays.

This is urgent to promote the health and wellbeing of the many millions of New Zealanders who suffer from anxiety, pain, autoimmune and other chronic but debilitating disorders. Advice to FSANZ confirms CBD products are safe. Advice from Treasury confirms this will save on law enforcement costs. International research shows CBD will significantly reduce the cost of importing less effective pharmaceutical drugs, which often have serious side effects. The public support for medicinal cannabis is overwhelming.
You were elected to represent the people. We urge you to act promptly in the public interest to immediately make this safe natural product available to the many who need it and to protect our brave Green Fairies from prosecution for helping them.
