Stoner alert: J-day review

May 3, 2009

After a week of rainy, blustery weather, J-day 2009 dawned fair, and the members of NORML who have been organising the event for a coupla months breathed a huge sigh of relief. Tents were raised, PA’s set in series, and the music and good times began to flow at around high noon on the 2nd May at Frank Kitts’ Park, Wellington, as well as at other venues around the country.

DJ’s Thief and Funkdamunk entertained the relaxed and cheerful crowd, who also created some of their own entertainment with juggling, poi twirlers and hacky sack being in evidence. The amphitheatre of the park was well filled by mid-afternoon, and despite the sky clouding over and the wind increasing slightly, there was a good crowd for the 4.20 smoke up.

Norml are making an attempt to get some more action on changing the legislation around marijuana possession, specifically in terms of the Misuse of Drugs Act, with the support of MP’s Tim Barnett, Meteria Turei, and former MP Nandor Tancos.

Bored with a record shop.

Ever wondered what goes on when the proprietor of secondhand record shop at the butt end of the world chucks in the towel and goes back to having a life??
