Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Cannabis dealer has fight to keep house

Simon John Inwood has some explaining to do about the $70,000 the police found in a safe at Christchurch house where he was dealing in cannabis. (Press: http://www.stuff.co.nz/print/4689207a11.html )

He also has a fight on his hands to keep the house for his partner and the mother of his two children. The Crown wants to take it away because of the commercial drug dealing that was going on there.

The explanations are scheduled for November 20, when Inwood's mother, 48-year-old Sharon Mary Lillian Inwood, is also due to oppose her property being taken away. It is close to her son's house in Main North Road.

The mother, son and his partner have all pleaded guilty to cannabis charges and were to be sentenced by Justice John Fogarty in the High Court at Christchurch today.

But Justice Fogarty went ahead only with the sentencing of the partner, 28-year-old Raewyn Elizabeth Tomlins, on charges of allowing the home to be used for the cannabis operation, and selling some of it herself.

He sentenced her to four months of home detention, but ensured that she would still be able to leave the house if any medical emergencies arose relating to her children, aged three years and 18 months.

He said it would have been an onerous penalty to remove her from the children for a term of imprisonment.
