Call to ban synthetic cannabis

Conservative Party leader Colin Craig has joined a number of organisations, community leaders and others in calling for a total ban on the sale of harmful substances including synthetic cannabis.

“This is clearly a case where personal freedoms come at a cost to the community at large. Intervention in such cases is entirely justified. The legalisation and proliferation of these mind altering substances is a new low point for our communities,” he said.

Mr Craig applauded the Christchurch and Hamilton City Councils for placing stringent restrictions on sale of such substances.

“This is an example, once again, of councillors and the community picking up the pieces from failed parliamentary policy,” he said.

According to him, New Zealand is the only country to adopt a pre-market clinical trial regime for recreational drugs.

Such social experimentation is not in the best interests of the young and the vulnerable in our society, he said.

“This is another social experiment that is sure to fail. The Conservative Party will work for an across-party accord to secure an outright ban on legal highs if elected to Parliament in September,” Mr Craig said.

He is a successful businessman and founder of a number of companies, including ‘Centurion Management Services.’

He launched the Conservative Party towards the end of last year.
