Christchurch STUFF debate, PRESS Editor calls JK on rebuilding community
John Key called out the Editor of the Christchurch Press when she said of the re-build projects that four years down the line we have a [partly] completed riverside track.... Key retorted referencing the four page advertorial to be published prior to election day saying how well we (Brownlee et al) are doing... while RNZ did rightly question the probity of this being electoral advertising I have another spin on it that wasnt asked at the Christchurch (Stuff.co.nz online debate) event last night.

Perhaps Mr Key would like to address himself to the press.co.nz two page oped on page 6 of the "Escape" lift out published the same day (Monday 1st Sept) headlined "Weed AND wildflowers" exploring in journalistic delight the merits of Colorado's recent experience with legal cannabis.
Writer Colin Covert's (is that a pseudonym?) by-line is "Marijuana tourism is a budding industry in Colorado after recreational cannabis use was legalised."
"Colorado:where prohibition ends and the fun begins" reads one of the advertisements in this travel section.
Where do I book my tickets many will be thinking.
Others of course will be thinking, like this writer "And where the hell is the political debate here?"
Didn't Jim Anderton/Helen Clark legalise recreational soft drug use in 2008?
Didn't it become the LAW the very day Key became Prime Minister?
When is that question going to be debated on the hustings?
Ether soft drugs are a problem or they are not...
Piss or get off the Pot Mr Key!
