NZ Medical Association back tracks on legal cannabis stance

From Morning Report, 7:27 am on 13 October 2020

The Medical Association has back tracked on its stance opposing the cannabis referendum, and apologised to doctors who feel they were misrepresented.

It now says it isn't taking a position on the referendum.

It comes after doctors approached RNZ unhappy with the NZMA's stance, saying the Association did not consult with members.

RNZ's cannabis referendum reporter Ben Strang is covering the story.
