    It's feared mental health could be the big loser if a decision's made to legalise cannabis in New Zealand

    It's feared mental health could be the big loser if a decision's made to legalise cannabis in New Zealand


    Six years after making the drug legal, the US state of Colorado is said to be still waiting to reap the 'so-called' benefits.

    A new study reveals seizures of marijuana in the U.S mail system have increased more than a thousand percent since 2013, and one in four employees are self reporting they go to work stoned.

    Executive director of the National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association Jo McGuire says having no limit on the amount of THC has seen mental health issues skyrocket.

    She wants to see measures taken to cap THC and preventing home grows that compete with the regulatory market.
