Please forgive me I am struggling with time to go through each question individually.
I would like to place in record that I believe that the Misuse of Drugs Act is both discriminatory and long overdue for review.
I believe that as with alcohol, problematic drug use only affects a small number of drug consumers (less than 10%), with the rest being recreational users who continue to live productive lives.
I further believe that problematic drug use is a public health issue and not a criminal justice issue.
I tend not to differentiate between medical and recreational drug use on the simple basis that why would you consume something that didn’t improve one’s health and wellbeing!
I am a strong supporter of the Cannabis regulation system in Uruguay, where a citizen can obtain a licence to purchase cannabis from licensed pharmacies, it is also legal to establish small cannabis clubs and to grow your own.
I hope this is helpful
