Apathy rules in NZ

I attended one of the ‘nationwide protests’ today.. to highlight the issue of Medicinal cannabis; or the lack thereof in Aotearoa/NZ. I read that there were protests organised in Auckland (biggest city), Wellington (capital), Nelson (a ‘hippy centre’) & Dunedin (aka Dunsterdam). NZ supposedly has amongst the highest cannabis use rates in the world, with recent polls showing 70% support for med-use.

At the Dunedin protest I attended.. FOUR people bothered to show up, OK so maybe it wasn’t very widely advertised ? BUT to my mind that was PATHETIC !

I watched the news; the protest in Auckland (which did make TV news) it looked like about a hundred showed up.. from a population of over 1 million.. also pretty pathetic. Its a bloody joke, that kiwis supposedly have a high use rate of cannabis, BUT when the ‘movement’ calls on the people to ‘stand up & be counted’ only a tiny portion can be bothered.. ie APATHY really rules in NZ on this issue !!

No wonder; prohibition is still the ‘accepted’ situation here 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦
