Final Reminder: Should approved legal high products be sold in your community?

November 27, 2014 at 9:02 AM

Many people think Legal Highs are banned for good - however this is not the case and we will surely see new psychoactive drugs return to shop shelves next year in 2015. Right now, Auckland Council is creating a Local Approved Products policy that will determine where shops selling legal highs can be located in our communities.

This policy will stop the sale of approved Legal High products in the following areas:

  • Certain highly vulnerable communities 
  • Neighbourhood centers 
  • Buffer zones around schools, residential mental health or ​addiction treatment centers and other Legal High retailers

It is essential Auckland communities have this tool to reduce the harm legal highs can create. Submissions close this Friday at 4pm and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to get this policy over the line! 

 

There are two easy ways you can help:

1) Signal your support for the draft policy by following this link:
