    New Zealand law permits ‘low risk’ designer drugs


    Under proposed legislation, suppliers can sell new recreational drugs in New Zealand if they can show that they carry a “low risk of harmâ€
    PILL-POPPERS and drug regulators everywhere: turn your eyes to New Zealand. The country looks set to adopt new laws permitting the sale of some designer drugs for recreational use.


    Under the proposed laws, which a parliamentary committee last week recommended to be passed, manufacturers will be able to sell any currently unregulated psychoactive substance if they can demonstrate it has a “low risk of harmâ€. But the laws also allow for any substance not already regulated to be prohibited from sale until approved.


    The bill was designed to regulate the supply of designer drugs like synthetic cannabis and “meow meowâ€. Its guiding principle is that products can be sold provided they meet safety requirements.


    “The new law will put the onus on industry to demonstrate their products are low-risk, using a similar testing process to pharmaceuticals,†says Ross Bell of the New Zealand Drug Foundation in Wellington, an organisation that campaigns to reduce drug harms.


    Some inconsistencies may arise: cannabis will continue to be banned, but a synthetic cannabis could potentially be legalised if it passes safety tests. Bell says existing bans may be reconsidered in the future. A new regulatory authority will be set up to administer the measures, advised by an independent expert technical committee.


    “The neat thing about this is that it says to the industry, ‘we'll let you create a market for your products, but you have to play by the rules and not do stupid things like label substances as bath salts’,†says Bell. He says that while everyone else is still trying to ban every new drug that comes along, New Zealand is the first country to try to regulate them. “This is one of the more pragmatic responses to new psychoactive substances, and it could provide a model for others to follow.â€


    It says ‘we'll let you create a market, but you have to play by the rules, and not do stupid things’

    don't know but it takes more than 15 hours to travel to NZ. I can't think of anything that is worth my sitting on an airplane for 15 hours.

    Inhaling fumes of dry ice in alcohol. Apparently you can loose a lot of weight this way, too, cuz its a zero calorie method

    i don't understand what that does. fumes of dry ice are CO2. CO2 is not a polar molecule so alcohol won't dissolve in it. something else must be going on or maybe the CO2 is blocking oxygen from reaching your brain?
