Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Cannabis

David from Glen Eden

The biggest nonsense I read is the comparison with alcohol as if it was an excuse to support cannabis. That is enough to kill any decision to add yet another mind bending drug to one we all ready can't handle. We are talking about cannabis, not alcohol or the price of fish.
If cannabis was harmless there wouldn't be ANY discussion at all about it. The stuff damages younger brains, can be addictive and can lead to worse drugs. It does nothing to improve social standards of behaviour and the people who crave it and deal in it are not generally the brightest of the species. The finest solution would be to apply the law and remove every trace and mention of it from society. And that includes the gangs. As a medicine, no problem, just give it another name and if the medical world endorse its use by prescription, ok. The fact that we can't or don't enforce existing laws is a poor excuse to legalise this stuff. Some countries, disciplined ones, even have the death sentence on the books for dealers of the stuff. The police have enough to do without another set of convoluted rules on any legal use of cannabis which they will never be able to properly enforce.
