  1. I see minister Dunne has issued a press release; that even though he approved the supposed ‘one-off’ use of Elixinol (Hemp Oil).. the floodgates have not opened.. ie ‘nothing has changed’ ; (zero-tolerance reigns).
    Again i ask.. “Why minister, are you ignoring the mounting evidence overseas, that cannabis does have medicinal/therapeutic value, for a range of illnesses/conditions & as a pain relief ?” & “Who is feeding you this (mis)information that opposes this ??”

    OR are you still on a ‘crusade’ to flood the country with Synthetic drugs, which you reportedly claim are ‘less harmful’ than the natural plant ?
    “PLEASE EXPLAIN !!” :/ all B-S says I&I 😦

      Honestly, the sooner they get rid of this silly old attention seeking, self important, waist of space, the better!

      Talk about ‘yesterdays man’ still feeding off the hard working taxpayers tit…..and you would be surprised how many National MPs’ think exactly the same!!

      • For the next two and a half years abusing Dunne will reduce any chance of anything changing because National aren’t interested (strongly).

        But Labour are running from anything controversial too. And even the Greens aren’t exactly putting any priority on addressing it.

        Successful politics is about finding ways of working with those who can make a difference.

        Futile politics is abusing anyone you see as and impediment to achieving your aims.

        Hence New Zealand is falling behind the world on reform, because confrontation and moaning rarely achieves anything.
