At the NORML New Zealand conference at Tokaanu last Saturday, Chris Fowlie was elected unopposed to the position of President. As it is written:

And then shall they see the Son of Mr. and Mrs. Fowlie coming in a cloud of smoke with power and great glory.

That’s Chris third from the right (at the back) standing behind me on the far right, and Phil Saxby second from the right. NORML issued a post-conference press release.

Scoop Independent News reports:

«New Zealand should regulate cannabis like alcohol and save at least $300 million per year, says the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, New Zealand Inc (NORML).

At its weekend conference at Tokaanu, delegates elected Chris Fowlie of Auckland as President, and Phil Saxby of Wellington as Secretary.

Chris Fowlie was previously President of NORML from 1997-2008 during which time NZ came tantalizingly close to cannabis law reform, has owned and managed The Hempstore for 16 years, and regularly appears in court as an independent cannabis expert witness.»

NORML is optimistic New Zealand is entering a period where cannabis law reform will finally happen here, and so am I, particularly now that we have competent, committed, convivial people with proven track records of activism such as Chris (and Phil, Billy, Gary, Dakta, etc.) running the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. It really is high time.

Pope Francis IArticle by Richard Goode.

I’m liking the new Pope Francis. Formerly Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, he chose his papal name in honour of San Francesco d’Assisi). He’s no liberal (none of that gay marriage nonsense) and Pope Francis lays out vision of ‘poor church’ working for the people.

The Guardian reports that:

«St. Francis of Assisi, the pope said, was ‘the man of the poor. The man of peace. The man who loved and cared for creation and in this moment we don’t have such a great relationship with the creator. The man who gives us this spirit of peace, the poor man who wanted a poor church.'»

But his views on recreational drug use are anachronistic to say the least.

The Buenos Aires Herald reports that Cardinal Bergoglio bashes bill to legalize drugs for personal consumption:

Archbishop of Buenos Aires Jorge Mario Bergoglio criticized yesterday the bill that aims to legalize drugs for personal consumption, which is sponsored by the ruling Victory Front and backed by the Radical Civic Union and the Broad Progressive Front. Bergoglio, who headed the traditional mass and procession of Corpus Christi in Plaza de Mayo, warned young people about the intentions of those who sell illegal drugs.

‘Don’t trust the merchants of death,’ said the archbishop as he delivered a speech to the people who took part in the youth march that anticipates the Corpus Christi celebration.

‘Some people dedicate their life to corrupt others, don’t let them trick you, no matter if they promise you a thousand things,’ insisted Bergoglio.

The cardinal also condemned the lawmakers’ who agreed to debate the initiative.

Currently a draft bill is being debated by the Committee for the Prevention of Drug Addiction and the Criminal Law Committee. Last week Supreme Court Justice Eugenio Raúl Zaffaroni backed the initiative when he was invited to give a talk.

Let’s not look to the Vatican for startling new drug law reform initiatives.
