Your Privacy

The answers you give on this website are for your own reference. No-one will monitor what you write and, as long as you don’t give your password away, you will be the only person who can read it.

PotHelp has been specifically created for people who have problems with their cannabis use. We aren’t here to judge you and this site doesn’t make any judgments about people who use pot - we really want you to get well and hope this site will help!

Yes, it’s illegal to have or use pot in New Zealand, but we will not share information with any agency. 

It’s important you know the New Zealand Drug Foundation only has a handful of staff (and they were already flat out before Pothelp was created!!!).  The Foundation’s staff will only have time to dip in and out very occasionally to assess how the site is working and whether it should be tweaked. Individual journal entries will never be viewed. 

If you have any feedback which could help them make this site awesome for people wanting to control their pot use, please flick them an email.

Pothelp is a safe place for you to gain control over your pot use. So get started and do what you need to do to get well.
