New Zealand drug enforcement reforms

On 12 October the New Zealand Government announced a new “legal highs” regime which is very much in line with the sorts of reforms Australia21 has advocated for Australia, only to have the idea dismissed out of hand by both Government and Opposition.

Hopefully in due course our Government will look across the Tasman and learn something from the New Zealand experience.
