Libertarianz: Free Dakta Green!

04 May 2009 14:02:00

Cannabis law reform campaigner and Cannabus driver Dakta Green has been arrested and charged twice for minor cannabis offending and breaking bail conditions.

Libertarianz notes with alarm that these arrests coincided with the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party’s announcement that Dakta Green would be standing as their candidate in the Mt Albert by-election.

Libertarianz supports the ALCP’s call for cannabis to be legalised and believes that peacefully smoking cannabis should not be a crime. Police should not waste any time or money on the persecution of otherwise law-abiding cannabis smokers.

While Libertarianz believes that political party candidates should be subject to the laws of the country like any other citizens, the timing of the arrests rings alarm bells that the police are politically motivated in their actions.

Libertarianz calls for an end to the madness that is cannabis prohibition, and demands that all charges against Dakta Green be dropped.

Free Dakta Green!
