It seems Peter Dunne (June 13) is as misinformed about me, as much as 
he is about medicinal cannabis.

I have not been part of Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party for four years.

Peter Dunne is more interested in vilifying me, rather than proving 
my comments false. Because he cannot.

When he claims my ignorance about his stance on medicinal cannabis, 
does he mean I'm unaware of his introduced bill, to test harm in 
drugs, that banned cannabis from being tested.

Is he talking about, allowing synthetic cannabis to run amok in New 
Zealand, while his son was a key lawyer and lobbyist for the 
legal-high industry?

Peter Dunne has constantly said one thing in the public arena (to 
sound credible), while in private communique's, he is draconian and 
unyielding in his responses.

Researchers have claimed, natural crude cannabis is the "best and 
safest medicine of choice" for many serious health problems.

Peter Dunne promotes an overpriced product, with ingredients that 
include antifreeze as his contribution to the people of New Zealand, 
who could benefit from real cannabis now.

I stand by my call, that he should stand down as the Associate Heath Minister.

How about giving the job to someone who has a medical background?
