New Government Ministry
The government is considering taking legal action against the tobacco companies.
At the same time it is proffering the view that puffing “the odd bit of cannabis” is okay.
“Is there a new government ministry dreaming up these ideas?” asks New Zealand First MP Ron Mark.
“This Ministry of silly ideas must surely contemplate the possibility that some future government will need to take legal action against the cannabis companies to seek compensation for the untold damage such a decision would cause.”
“I am concerned for the future health of our citizens. It is not just the backy that’s wacky,” said Mr Mark
