What’s a clever way to get the authorities to legalize cannabis consumption? Passing legislation, holding education forums, or even getting scientific proof into the mix or how about pushing a shopping cart of the good shit burning up into your local police station? Got your shopping cart ready?
tokeofthetown.com: Wellington, New Zealand police will decide Friday whether to charge cannabis legalization activists who pushed a shopping cart full of burning marijuana into the central police station foyer.
Studying the footage or closely testing it for efficacy and potent relevancy? Which begs the question how did the shopping cart end up in the police station in the first place?
Which makes us wonder, why are the Kiwis so adamant about their ‘good shit?’
Armistice Tour spokesman Dakta Green said that cannabis was a more natural, healthier option than other drugs and did not fuel crime.
“You cannot overdose on cannabis,” Green said. “There are many people that have died from drinking too much alcohol, one night of heavy drinking and you can die, tobacco will almost certainly kill you… cannabis has never killed anybody.”
You can not lock up the community, but you can always sell another keg of alcohol or another cigarette and tax the merry go round. Something it seems you can’t do for the cannabis market.
One day the only thing they’ll be tipping into the police station will be an empty shopping cart. At least let’s hope so…
