Download a PDF copy of the latest Legalise NZ poster! This version is the “Sell weed not SOEs” version for 2013, and is based on a poster seen during the march against the sale of state owned enterprises recently. I’ve also used a fantastic Albert Einstein quote.
“The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.” – Albert Einstein quote on Hemp

Here is an incredibly detailed analysis of the question of exactly how much would be saved in the USA if they went to full legalisation.
The report examines the budgetary implications of legalizing marijuana – taxing and regulating it like other goods – in all fifty states and at the federal level, and estimates that legalizing marijuana would save $7.7 billion per year in government expenditure on enforcement of prohibition. $5.3 billion of this savings would accrue to state and local governments, while $2.4 billion would accrue to the federal government.

Today, Stephen McIntyre hung himself with a rope, because the Police raided The Auckland Greencross, and then had him up in the courts for opening NZ’s first non-profit charitable trust authorized by the NZ government to help patients to obtain cannabis for medicine. Cannabis a natural plant, used as medicine in Israel for 19 years, U.S.A for 16 years and mentioned in every pharmacological text produced in the past 2,000 years and scientifically proven for many treatments.
New Zealand has the highest arrest and incarceration rate of cannabis users in the world. Yet many of those arrested are young people possessing small amounts for personal use. Is personal use of cannabis really a ‘crime’? And wouldn’t Police time be better spent focusing on more serious matters?
Perhaps New Zealand would have a lower suicide rate if cannabis was legalised / de-criminalised? I think so.
“New Zealand has lost a peaceful and gentle man who advocated quietly for the sort of reforms that have halved the number of drug users in Portugal over the last decade,” said Dr McGrath, who works at two alcohol and drug clinics in the lower North Island.

Greetings to those present, your honour, people in the jury. Also, thanks to my many supporters in the gallery, big ups to each and every one, I give praise and thanks for your support. I would like to address the jury:
You personally today have the unique and once in a lifetime ability to change not just the course of one mans life – mine – but to also change the entire course of NZ legal history itself by contributing a precedent setting legal case due to Jury Nullification! How come? Why is this case gonna change the course of law?
That is because, like it or not, laws are created three ways:
You as a citizen and jury-member have the right to stand up and say, no fuck it, SecretStoner has a fucking point, this law is a motherfucking ass, screw this, fuck what you say, give the man a break, we find the defendant…. not guilty!
Clay S. Conrad defines “jury nullification” this way:
Jurors in criminal trials have the right to refuse to convict if they believe that a conviction would be in some way unjust… If juries are nothing more than rubber stamps, they are no limit on government’s power to pass unjust, immoral, or oppressive laws, and citizens are entirely at the mercy of sometimes jaded or corrupt courts and legislatures.
Jury Nullification in New Zealand
This Not-PC blog is decent and reminds us of the Waihopai verdict.
And for christs sake, look, why be all up and anctious about a herb which, well look this picture says it all…
I just wanna pay taxes and contribute to helping the environment and making some great music. Not sit in jail all day getting depressed about how cool my life used to be (and it was wicked) and how to rebuild it later. OK? Sort it. Power in your hand guvna. Do it jury man. Do me and your country proud. Do it for yourself.
