"New Zealanders Are Suffering,
People Are Dying,
The Solution Is Kiwis Growing Their Own Medicine!
Medical Cannabis Has Been Proven To Relieve Pain,
& In Some Cases, Cure, Serious Life Threatening Health Conditions.
Products Must Be Made Available To People Who Need Them.
New Zealand Is Massively In Debt,
Well Over 100 Billion, Why?
Because We Don't Create Wealth,
We Borrow It!
The Solution: Industrial Hemp!
1 Hectare of Hemp,
Is Enough Material To Build A 3 Bedroom Home,
You Get Up To 3 Crops Per Year,
And The Fibre Can Be Made Up To 12 Times Stronger Than Steel,
& Manufactured into 50,000 Different Industrial Products.
With The Advent Of 3D Printing And Robotics,
We'd Revitalize New Zealand's Struggling Rural Economy,
Provide New And Lucrative Opportunities For Our Farmers,
& New Zealand Could Become,
One Of The Worlds Leading Manufacturers & Exporters,
Of Highly Sought After,
Top Quality Hemp Products.
Natural Cannabis Hasn't Killed Anyone In Thousands Of Years,
It's Non-Toxic, Non Addictive, Cheap To Grow,
& It's A Billion Dollar Black Market!
The Regulated Sale Of Cannabis Would Return $150 Million Per Annum In GST Alone.
Plus, Saving An Instant $400 Million Per Year We Save In Drug Policy Enforcement.
And That's Also Not Taking Into Account New Zealand's #1 Industry, TOURISM.
The Dutch Cannabis Cafe Model Attracts 1 Million Tourists Per Year,
From Neighbouring France Alone!
The Benefits To New Zealand's Economy,
& Society in General,
By Providing A Safe Alternative To Alcohol,
Is virtually incalculable."
