I obtained drug convictions in my youth that have haunted me my entire life. even though it’s been 34 years since my last drug conviction, it’s still making my life difficult advises.Tuari Potiki: departing chair of the NZ Drug Foundation,
In 2019-20 there were more than 3000 convictions for minor drug offences and about 40 per cent of those were Māori. Māori carry the burden of our drug laws, receiving 49 per cent of all convictions for drug possession and use, and they are more likely to go to prison for low-level offences than non-Māori.
Convictions don’t work. They hang over you forever and impact every facet of your life. But they have been proven to do nothing whatsoever to reduce drug use or harm among those unlucky enough – or Māori enough – to be caught.
Well sorry to hear that , Tuari there is a word for that, its called consequences the law held you accountable for your actions ,sorry your actions where your choice you knew the law and you knew the consequences suck it up
