New Zealand's Peter Dunne to Back Genter's Medical Cannabis Bill

July 6, 2017


Peter Dunne, the New Zealand minister responsible for the nation's drug reform says he will now give his initial support to Julie-Anne Genter's bill that would legalize medicinal marijuana and medicinal cannabis cultivation for some patients.


Julie-Anne Genter was born in the United States, but she's a representative of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand as well as a member of the New Zealand Parliament's House of Representatives. According to Genter's page on the Green Party's website, "she knows that the answers lie in local and central government policies that give people better options."


Until now, Peter Dunne has been criticizing Genter's marijuana legalization bill as "unworkable." Now, it seems as if Dunne will be supporting Genter's bill at its first reading. The proposed bill would make medical marijuana legal for patients with qualifying conditions.


Check out the video below for a full background on the bill, and how it can get through New Zealand's Parliament.
