An exclusive look inside New Zealand’s medical profession identified medicinal cannabis is used by 1 in 20 Kiwis over the age of 15. Approx 175,000 New Zealanders suffering from chronic diseases are having uninformed conversations about treatment options with their doctors.
This unique documentary narrated by Victoria features interviews with a terminally ill cancer patient and her choice of pain relieving medication; Dr Anthony Falkov (M.D), who was the late Helen Kelly's cancer doctor, about how doctors can have safe but informed conversations with patients to reduce harms and increase health outcomes; and Dr Michelle Glass (PhD), a cannabinoid researcher, who let them peek into her worldclass research laboratory. They also got the lowdown from the infamous Nelson Lawyer, Sue Grey, about the legal ramifications for both doctors and patients surrounding cannabis law in NZ.

Join the founder of Cookie Time Michael sharing his love of delicious nutritious Hemp and it’s regenerative potential to clean up our rivers...
"In New Zealand, there’s been a lot of talk about making our rivers swimmable again. The thought of that depresses me."

Cannabis Law and Politics - Presented by Sue Grey
Sue was a specialist in environmental law when, five years ago, she was asked to act for 61 year-old Golden Bay woman Victoria Davis, who had been charged with cannabis cultivation and possession. Davis had been growing for her husband John, a double amputee wracked with phantom pains.
Grey won her client a discharge without conviction, in part by presenting a doctor’s letter to the judge.
She thought she would move on, but in 2015, Davis recommended her to another Golden Bay resident in legal trouble, Rebecca Reider. Reider was facing serious charges after posting herself two bars of cannabis chocolate — which had been legally prescribed to her for chronic pain in California and delivered to her family’s home.
Again, Grey presented medical records and Reider was eventually discharged.
But she also studied the Misuse of Drugs Act and discovered that Reider was allowed to import a controlled drug if it was prescribed and she brought it in herself.
Since then, Sue has successfully fought and won many high profile cases for our cannabis community, The latest being Rose Renton's case with again, a successful outcome.
Due to the continual confusion of NZ Cannabis and hemp laws... Sue will do a presentation at NZHF to help our understanding of the current laws, and will be there to answer any questions you may have!
