Opportunities Party Candidate Reveals Takapuna As The Centre Of Burgeoning Cannabis Trade

The Opportunities Party (TOP) candidate for North Shore, Abe Gray, is proud of his electorate's outsized role in the burgeoning, newly legal trade in high THC cannabis flower.

Did you know that millions of dollars worth of cannabis has been sold in Takapuna in the last year totally legally?!

Abe is hosting a Public Meeting + Q & A in Takapuna this Wednesday evening for members of the public to learn about the newly legal THC Flower Cannabis economy and to get any questions they may have answered. Did you know anyone can get a prescription for cannabis for any reason with any therapeutic dimension whatsoever? Did you know that you can legally purchase high THC Cannabis flower more easily in Takapuna than anywhere else in the country?

Abe will also be highlighting and answering questions about The Opportunities Party (TOP)'s Cannabis Policy, which is to treat Cannabis and Alcohol equally under the same Sale and Supply legislation. TOP plans to reduce alcohol harm and control cannabis using a shared legislative framework based on a strengthened version of the current Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act.

Come along to Fantail & Turtle at Smales Farm in Takapuna this Wednesday the 4th of October at 7pm and ask every question you've ever wanted to know the answer to about legal cannabis and The Opportunities Party.

The less charitable view is that the government was being deliberately misleading. Are we to think Prime Minister Christopher Luxon is a fool, or a liar? It seems rather early on in his term of office to be facing that unpleasant choice. Yet when Luxon (and senior MP Chris Bishop) tried to defend the indefensible with the same wildly inaccurate claim, there are not a lot of positive explanations left on the table.... More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti.
