    To be more accurate, they aren't supposed to sell any weed they confiscate, and they certainly don't return any proceeds to the public purse.

    Ooops, you're right. I misspoke.

    Lift imitates art: I wonder if they chose that because it's bright green and fluoresces under UV, so it looks good as a movie prop liquid?

    All in the service of making meth look safer and easier to trade in than weed.

    Yes, it's criminal - the failure of our politicians, that is.

  • Alfie,

    Cops and choppers
    Police in the Eastern District (Waipukurau to the top of East Cape) -- have located in excess of 10,000 cannabis plants this season. The cops there must have a better budget than the Tasman boys because they had "aerial support over 10 days from a plane and a helicopter."

    Back in Nelson Police have criticised "social media trolls" who dare to question the waste of Police resources in their area. Methinks the good officer needs to look up the definition of troll.

    "The public don't seem to understand the connection between the cultivation of cannabis and these criminal fraternities and other class A drugs," he said.

    "Other class A drugs"? Someone may have a minor perception problem, but nothing a little re-education wouldn't fix.
