    Kia kaha, Russell and Fiona, and Sunset Sam – oops, I mean James and The One Who Does Not Like Being Discussed.

    Heh! He did once discover I'd written a blog post about him. He was okay about it :-)

    Russell, I really feel for what you have gone through advocating for your mum. Nobody should have to do that, and certainly not this year. Thank goodness for family.

    Thanks buddy. I pondered one more complaint to the Health and Disability Commissioner for a bit too long, but I realised last night that an OIA request, to check whether CCDHB actually made the changes they promised, would be a good thing to work on over the break.

    It revealed the strengths & weaknesses we have as a society.

    There wasn't really room for it in this post, but I've been thinking about that in terms of the people who've succumbed to conspiracy theories. We reveal our individual vulnerabilities too.

    If no one had proposed this word I'd have done it myself.

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis, in reply to Waseem Alzaher,

    Dr Waseem here from Cannabis Clinic. I just wanted to clarify an error in your article. Dr Craig works solely for Cannabis Clinic and not Green Doctors. She has requested her name be removed for 2 months now.

    Thank you Dr Waseem. I'll update the post.

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis,

    Thanks guys. I felt uneasy about blocking someone for disagreeing with me, but you’re right.

    Thing is, I do know who WH is – I actually helped him change his handle from full name to initials some years ago – and he doesn’t have any standing to question my credentials.

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis, in reply to Neil,

    It’s expensive and does not play well with the anti-psychiatry lobby but it’s an essential part of making harm reduction work.

    Can't disagree with any of that!

    One irony, of course, is that the local "No" campaign is bolstered by Scientology front operations who are very anti-psychiatry ...

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis, in reply to WH,

    There’s something else going on today – maybe you’re watching it on television. Maybe you’ve been caught in the crossfire.

    Could you possibly go and be a patronising twat somewhere else?
