Another senseless ban passed in parliament last night.
The bill passed 109 to 11 with only the Green, Maori and Act parties opposing.
Thanks National, the party of individual freedom and choice - huge joke.
And what is it with the contradictory, contrary Greens who want to tell us what we can and can't consume in the foodline but not in the recreational drugline.
The Maori Party??? Hone Harawira talks convincingly about the dangers of prohibition creating black markets and crime but wants to ban cigarettes.
How I long for some consistency and principle from the big house on the hill.
(BTW - Who abstained? 11 should be 12)
