I read that a 51 year old kiwi man, has recently been sentenced to 20 months jail for cultivating a ‘commercial quantity’ of cannabis.. BUT he went down as a ‘Roaring Lion’ (refusing to grovel before the ‘authority’ of the Judge !) presenting a ‘picture of defiance in the dock’.
The ‘offender’ said he was a regular user & ‘he had no intentions to change his lifestyle’.
The report says he had a ‘sophisticated’ growing operation with; lamps, thermostats, power boxes, control boxes, air-pumps & ducting. The police seized 38 cannabis plants, 151 cannabis cuttings drying in the garage & 1370 grams of cannabis heads in bags, under the house. An estimated (black-market) value of $53k
Whilst I do not support him ‘breaking the law’.. obviously had he been in Colorado, he could be seen as an ‘entrepreneur’ NOT a criminal. Again proving that there is a large ‘illegal’ market in Aotearoa/NZ & he saw a ‘market potential’ with his exploits.
“GRRRRR to the prohibition laws” says I&I 🙂
