Why I’m running
I am a woman who has had enough of the enormous damage inflicted on our society by cannabis prohibition. Prohibition is responsible for both the high levels of cannabis use by our young people and the harsh impact that cannabis convictions have on their career. Legalizing cannabis, regulating the industry and adding an age-limit, are the best ways to help solve these problems.
I am a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother, who lives and works in the Hokianga. I do community work in Kohukohu at The Harald building doing haircuts (qualified hairdresser, 20 years), named provider at the Rawene Hospital and Whangarie Hospital cancer unit of the cannabis oils. I'm the treasurer for my marae 'Morehu' for the last 2 and half years in a little place called Pawarenga. I attend the local market four Saturdays of the month with my oils. Educating, giving quality of life.
