Parliament’s Justice and Correctional Services Portfolio Committee invited the public to comment on the New Drugs and Drug Trafficking Amendment Bill of 2022

    • The most controversial aspect to the Amendment is the continued criminalization of cannabis and cannabis-related substances in Schedule 2 of the proposed Act. This has been identified by Government and private sector stakeholders as the biggest impediment to enabling a regulated cannabis economy to get off the ground. What’s even more astounding is that state regulators had dropped cannabis from Schedule 2 in their early deliberations, and then re-inserted it in order to “maintain the status quo”.

Have your say – shape the outcome. [CLOSED]
