"A government sponsored commission Tuesday recommended a major overhaul to drug laws in New Zealand. In their four-year review, the Law Commission called for legalizing medical marijuana, decriminalizing small amounts of cannabis and 'social dealing,' and rescinding paraphernalia laws. Use of marijuana for medicinal purposes should not be prosecuted until government-backed trials can be conducted, the commission said. ... They recommended a system of warnings instead of arrests for non-medical use of marijuana." (05/04/11)
