Potty Ideas Drives Jobs Summit into Ecstasy!
The appearance of the NORML "CANNABUS" on the Television Three evening news at the Jobs Summit created a lighthearted
segway to the 'bad news' from the Reserve Bank Governor - however despite a great camera shot, the bus's presence or
purpose at the event was not explored any further.
Legal regulation of Cannabis would not only have an impact in the New Zealand economy, globally, it would bring back in
to legal circulation about a trillion dollars that can be invested back into the community and towards trade. Such
creative thinking is particularly targeted at EU and western economies who seem to need any and all leverage options and
ideas to shorten and flatten this recession. The United States largest state economy, California, is considering legal
regulation of cannabis very seriously.
The UN Office of Drug Control is hosting a discussion this March on all drug prohibitions and how effective they deliver
health to people. New Zealand is sending Associate Health Minister, Hon Peter Dunne. He has already declared he is not
at all receptive to cannabis legalisation.... no matter how far he is prepared to throw the country down the toot, he is
emphatically opposed. So why send him, keep him at home and bank the money.
It has been often quoted elsewhere, but I repeat here for its timeliness and relevance to the NZ job summit, "times of
regulated recreational substances and no money are easier than all the money in the world and unregulated and bottomless
prohibition into which it is poured."
D-classification of cannabis will reinstate social cohesion and resiliency while balancing the books from both sides.
