I watched the first episode of this new season of ‘Back Benches’ (NZ politics in the pub) last evening. The panel was made up of 4 MPs : Green, Labour & 2 Govt. ministers (inc. Assoc. Health – Drug policy). There was discussion on recent political topics, including a brief mention of the synthetic company – closed.
At several points they panned through the audience.. there was quite a large Pro-Cannabis group present with banners/placards. The one that caught my eye said “Dictator Dunne” (the minister). It was interesting that the Green party were pro-law reform, but rarely, if ever mention it anymore
