I obtained drug convictions in my youth that have haunted me my entire life. even though it’s been 34 years since my last drug conviction, it’s still making my life difficult advises.Tuari Potiki: departing chair of the NZ Drug Foundation,

In 2019-20 there were more than 3000 convictions for minor drug offences and about 40 per cent of those were Māori. Māori carry the burden of our drug laws, receiving 49 per cent of all convictions for drug possession and use, and they are more likely to go to prison for low-level offences than non-Māori.

Convictions don’t work. They hang over you forever and impact every facet of your life. But they have been proven to do nothing whatsoever to reduce drug use or harm among those unlucky enough – or Māori enough – to be caught.

Well sorry to hear that , Tuari  there is a  word for that, its called consequences the law held you accountable for your actions ,sorry your actions where your choice you knew the law and you knew the consequences suck it up

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Hi Paul,

Your post sand poll have been rwemoved.

A reminder to please show respect for your fellow Neighbourly members by ensuring your comments and posts are helpful and constructive.

We have already seen a lot of negative and unconstructive comments made on social media platforms regarding this particular story and feel it is best not to create more disharmony in the community.


Neighbourly was built with the intention of bringing people together in a productive and positive way. We want members to share any opinions politely and respectfully and most of the time this happens, however sometimes we have to step in when the community flags comments they deem as inappropriate.

you have had the audacity to remove all three inclusive of one that had spirited interaction which indicated the subject was topical and had been live for a number of days


first of all you didn't even take the time to spell check you where in such a hurry to delete my thoughts 

My posts are helpful and constructive   i offer alternative views and my questions raise genuine concerns and i seek answers  

"we want members to share any opinions politely and respectfully which i have done just because  there is a lot negative and unconstructive comments made on social media platforms regarding this particular story and feel it is best not to create more disharmony in the community." 

Well they brought the attention to themselves they where the ones that advised NEWSHUB the community showed
genuine disgust at their behaviour and voiced it are you
to deny them their chance to show that

Did the community flag it or is it removed because one person complained /or was offended

Please be precise and have the courtesy to advise what particular point caused concern   

i am answering in the public forum as you have put me on your blacklist 
Do your not personally have the courage of your convictions lets see lets debate this in the public forum so we all understand the issues

answer please 
be advise will copy to media

Grooves up or down? Decking debate settled

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

The great kiwi deck, every home should have one. But there's a decking debate raging in DIY and Reno circles: Should the grooves go up or down?
We think we've settled the argument here.
