With a recent search showing +800,000 webpages mentioning cannabis/pot, the ALCP web site is now serving 4000 pages a month into the mix... approx. 600 of those pages are read by New Zealanders.
With links to the ALCP appearing on over 800+ web pages, at more than 500 sites worldwide, it is positioned to take a formidable role in controlling the dialogue...
Cannabis issues feature highly in the kiwi political culture... topping the online political news at #1 issue in Scoop yesterday Scoop: Just Politics , and a creditable 8th today... http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PO0011/S00092.htm
