Cannabis gummy bears could be banned under law reform

first_imgNewsHub 9 May 2019Family First Comment: Far more to worry about than just gummi bears.This shows just how naïve OR misleading the Greens are being around the real risks of cannabis products. #saynopetodopeGreen MP Chlöe Swarbrick has brushed off National’s concerns around cannabis-infused edibles, suggesting most types will likely be banned.National’s drug law reform spokesperson Paula Bennett said cannabis-infused edibles could be “dressed up so they’re appealing to young people and accidental use is of real concern”.Swarbrick wouldn’t confirm cannabis-infused gummy bears would definitely be banned, but said there was consensus among the Greens, Labour and New Zealand First that protecting children and displacing the black market were top priorities.“In line with all of those things, it’s pretty evident that we will be following what other jurisdictions have done in terms of banning or ensuring that we won’t have gummy bears.”Swarbrick said there’s no way with the Government’s “health-based approach” to drug reform that “we would be enabling products that could be argued as targeted towards children”.She said there will be “nothing to glorify the consumption of cannabis” – and actually, “quite the opposite because there will be public education campaigns about the harms”.Swarbrick wouldn’t confirm cannabis-infused gummy bears would definitely be banned, but said there was consensus among the Greens, Labour and New Zealand First that protecting children and displacing the black market were top priorities.“In line with all of those things, it’s pretty evident that we will be following what other jurisdictions have done in terms of banning or ensuring that we won’t have gummy bears.”Swarbrick said there’s no way with the Government’s “health-based approach” to drug reform that “we would be enabling products that could be argued as targeted towards children”.She said there will be “nothing to glorify the consumption of cannabis” – and actually, “quite the opposite because there will be public education campaigns about the harms”.Comparing cannabis-infused lollies to alcohol-soaked lollies, Bennett said: “You’re not going to get absolutely drunk off a couple of vodka-soaked lollies, but you can get absolutely wasted on a few concentrated marijuana [edibles].”READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/05/cannabis-gummy-bears-could-be-banned-under-law-reform.htmllast_img read more

India on top in Indore Test despite sloppy catching

first_imgNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – A dominant India remained on course for a big first-innings lead after skittling out Bangladesh for a meagre 150 runs, despite some sloppy catching on day one of the opening Test yesterday.The hosts lost opener Rohit Sharma for six in their reply but finished the day on 86-1 with Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agarwal putting on 72 runs for the flourishing second-wicket partnership. Pujara was batting on 43 with seven boundaries. Agarwal was lucky to reach 37 after being dropped in the slip by Imrul Kayes when on 32. Earlier, Mominul Haque won the toss in his first match as Bangladesh’s new Test captain but his decision to bat immediately backfired. India’s three-pronged pace attack exploited the early morning conditions and reduced them to 31-3 at the Holkar Cricket Stadium. After repeatedly beating the tentative bats of both openers, Umesh Yadav drew first blood in the sixth over, getting Imrul caught in the slip for six. Ishant Sharma sent back Shadman Islam in the next over before Mohammed Shami trapped Mohammad Mithun lbw for 13 to wreck the top order. Mominul and Mushfiqur Rahim combined pluck and luck to forge the only 50-plus partnership in the Bangladesh innings. Mominul was on three when he was spilled in the slip by Ajinkya Rahane, otherwise a safe catcher, who had a terrible day, off Ravichandran Ashwin. Mushfiqur was dropped twice, first by Virat Kohli and then by Rahane, who also dropped Mahmudullah off Ashwin. Ashwin spared himself any more heartbreak by bowling out Mominul, who made 37, and Mahmudullah. A much-relieved Rahane, sporting a sheepish smile, ran to congratulate Ashwin after the spinner sent back Mahmudullah. Shami (3-27) dismissed Mushfiqur, who made 43, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the last two balls before the tea break but Taijul Islam denied him a hat-trick after tea. “I had to think of the conditions and situation and try to keep my line as tight as possible and stick to my plans,” Shami told broadcaster Star Sports afterwards. “I have been bowling from wide of the crease in the last two years and I once again backed myself.”BANGLADESH 1st inningsShadman Islam c Wriddhiman Saha b Ishant Sharma 6Imrul Kayes c Ajinkya Rahane b Umesh Yadav 6Mominul Haque b Ravichandran Ashwin 37Mohammad Mithun lbw Mohammed Shami 13Mushfiqur Rahim b Mohammed Shami 43Mahmudullah b Ravichandran Ashwin 10Liton Das c Virat Kohli b Ishant Sharma 21Mehidy Hasan lbw Mohammed Shami 0Taijul Islam run-out Ravindra Jadeja 1Abu Jayed not out 7Ebadat Hossain b Umesh Yadav 2Extras: (lb-3, w-1) 4Total: (all out, 58.3 overs) 150Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-12, 3-31, 4-99, 5-115, 6-140, 7-140, 8-140, 9-148.Bowling: Ishant Sharma 12-6-20-2, Umesh Yadav 14.3-3-47-2, Mohammed Shami 13-5-27-3 (w-1), Ravichandran Ashwin 16-1-43-2, Ravindra Jadeja 3-0-10-0.INDIA 1st inningsMayank Agarwal not out 37Rohit Sharma c Liton Das b Abu Jayed 6Cheteshwar Pujara not out 43Extras: 0Total: (one wkt, 26.0 overs) 86Fall of wickets: 1-14.Bowling: Ebadat Hossain 11-2-32-0, Abu Jayed 8-0-21-1, Taijul Islam 7-0-33-0.last_img read more
