Cannabus arrives at Parliament

Cannabus arrives at Parliament

Thursday May 15, 2008

About a dozen pro-cannabis campaigners demonstrated outside Parliament Building today, calling for the drug to be legalised.

They arrived in their "Cannabus", which wasn't allowed into the grounds.

Speakers said there would have been more but they were in prison.

Their message was that more than half of all New Zealanders had smoked cannabis and a popular culture was being criminalised.

They had expected MPs from all political parties represented in Parliament to come out and talk to them, but only the Green's Metiria Turei put in an appearance.
