A tale of two countries: While Canada legalises cannabis, NZ Police charge more people

By   /  March 30, 2017  /  Chris Fowlie, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  18 Comments

The latest figures obtained by NORML show they are not charging fewer people for cannabis, but more. Ignoring the wishes of the community, they are spending more time and more money on it, and filling our courts and jails with even more canna-folk. In the 8 months to August 2016, police laid 3387 charges for possession of cannabis (around fourteen people every day). This compares to 3891 in all of 2015.

GUEST BLOG: Willie Jackson – Crime, burglaries and how failed politics impacts your community

By   /  March 30, 2017  /  Guest Blogs + Sponsored Posts, Most Recent Blogs  /  20 Comments

Let’s be clear, there is no easy solution to crime. Anyone telling you that more cops and locking people up for longer is the solution is lying to you. Crime is made far worse by failed politics and stupidly thought out policy so if we want to be serious about reducing our crime rate we need to look far closer at what is driving that crime.

Us and Them: The Fatal Divisions of Exploitative Culture

By   /  March 29, 2017  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  15 Comments

But, rather than attempting to reconcile ourselves to living in a multiplicity of malign cultures, it is probably more helpful to think of ourselves as inhabiting a single Exploitative Culture.
