MildGreen Initiative's curator insight, July 9, 2013 9:11 AM

Teens were "better off" on a mixture of booze and marijuana rather than just pure alcohol in social settings, he added. Alcohol was more dangerous than cannabis because it had a closer association with aggression and violence, loss of co-ordination and impacts on work and family life, he said

 

(Could this be an evidence based  local body election issue, with Alcohol reform so clearly on the agenda.?)

 

Robin Room has been an advisor to NZ's Ministry of Health.

Big ups to the Police, just ensuring that the members of the public who are prepared to take the greatest risk premium (gangs etc) get the 'price' asked... not that 10,000 plants will make any difference to the price in the market or put a  dint in the 200 tons of groomed pot traded to the 540,000 consumers in New Zealand.....

 

The Police are good at 'better stories', that is indisputable....
