After PM Clark had entered the venue, cannabis activist Paul mcMULLan of the Dunedin Cannabis Coalition approached her limousine and presented the gift to the two officials by the vehicle. "Please give this to the Prime Minister", he said. They recognised the cannabis seedling and smiled and one replied, "I don't think so". It was left at their feet. The seedling was accompanied by a letter and three glazed "Tick the leaf ' 99" discs made by award winning Dunedin ceramic artist, Tanya Carey. This was all tied together will some cannabis thread. The letter had this to say:
Dear Prime Minister,
If the Queen of England can receive a few leaves of the Herb, then the very least our Leader can be offered is a living seedling, full of potential. Treat the Herb well and you will prosper, otherwise....observe Jenny Shipley!
