In New Zealand police raided a “cannabis club”, in order to seize a marijuana vending machine that has been in the local media recently. The machine was “not for profit”, and was intended to collect money for community projects, or so the operators of the machine claim. Here is an idea for the operators of a vending machine that dispenses illegal drugs: Don’t tell the media you have a machine that dispenses illegal drugs.
New Zealand police detective Bruce Scott has made bold statements about the police approach to marijuana sales: “We certainly do not take a softly-softly approach.” That’s right, New Zealand marijuana smokers; don’t expect those cops to go softly-softly on you. Marijuana turns out to be New Zealand’s 3rd most popular drug, coming after old-fashioned alcohol and tobacco.
