Testing synthetic cannabis on rats ‘won’t make it safe for humans’


New Zealand’s “legal high” law doesn’t work but testing on animals isn’t the answer and will be met with fierce resistance, opponents say. A review of the Psychoactive Substances Act found it “does not function as intended” , partly because of a ban on using animals for testing. Unless that ban was lifted, the law would not work, the review said. But animal rights groups say the ban was included in the Act after a public outcry and removing it would spark similar outrage.
