According to a Ministry of Health document, New Zealand patients looking to find relief with medicinal cannabis will have to wait until mid-2020 to do so. 

The Misuse of Drug (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill, which was introduced by Health Minister David Clark in December 2017, is expected to become law by March 2019. The “go-live” date under the timeline set up by the Health ministry is in mid-2020. 

"And this is just for the required regulations. It is highly unlikely that dispensing would begin at that point and it would almost certainly be much later. This is unacceptable," Shane Reti, associate health spokesman said.
