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.

NEW LYNN LIONS CHRISTMAS PARADE 2020 (CANCELLED)

Lianne Sloan from New Lynn Lions Club

The New Lynn Lions have unfortunately had to cancel this year's Parade. Covid-19 has had an impact on businesses and local groups resulting in limited commitment to date. The Parade also requires a reasonable financial commitment both from our Lions Club and outside Grants and Donations. This year we were not successful with a Community Grant and without this support the decision has been made to cancel.

All going well we will be back in 2021 with a bigger and better Parade so hopefully we will see you all then. Please continue to watch our Facebook and Neighbourly sites for further updates. For any future Parade inquiries please email Noel at mountjoy@slingshot.co.nz.

We hope your Christmas is an enjoyable time.
