Family First warns against cannabis reform after damning Colorado report

first_imgNewsHub 13 September 2018Family First Comment: Don’t do it, New Zealand!“The report by the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area found that cannabis-related fatalities, hospitalisations, use, and illegal market activity have increased in the US state since the drug was legalised in 2014.”www.SayNopeToDope.nzCannabis-related traffic deaths have increased since legalisation in Colorado, a new report claims – but an advocate for medical cannabis in New Zealand says alcohol is far worse.The report by the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area found that cannabis-related fatalities, hospitalisations, use, and illegal market activity have increased in the US state since the drug was legalised in 2014.Since recreational cannabis was legalised in Colorado, cannabis-related deaths have increased 151 percent, the report claims, while cannabis-related traffic deaths involving drivers who tested positive more than doubled from 55 in 2013 to 138 in 2017.Family First New Zealand says the information should send a “clear warning to New Zealand to resist any weakening of drug laws,” adding that “liberalising” cannabis laws and “empowering” it is the “wrong path if we care about public health, public safety, and about our young people”.But Medical Cannabis Awareness New Zealand (MCANZ) author Shane Le Brun says the report has left out crucial information about alcohol consumption in Colorado since cannabis was legalised, telling Newshub cannabis is a much safer substance.“They’re talking about all these things being on the increase, but at the same time, knowing that alcohol is far more harmful than cannabis, they have ignored this,” he said.“The big problem with cannabis is that it swims around in your blood for weeks,” he said. “Even when you’re not impaired, you can still test positive for it long after you’ve used it, and that’s why the amount of drivers who test positive show up higher.”New Zealanders could be voting in a bumper referendum on cannabis by the end of next year, alongside a vote on euthanasia. The Green Party was promised a referendum on legalising the personal use of cannabis at or by the 2020 election as part of their coalition agreement with Labour.With the new information from Colorado, Family First New Zealand National Director Bob McCoskrie says it would be a bad idea for New Zealand to legalise cannabis, saying a “new industry of lobbyists and special interests will put profits over evidence-based policy protecting public health and safety.”He said regulation is failing in the nine US states that have legalised cannabis, and use among young people is increasing, alongside an increase in the number of car crashes involving cannabis.“New Zealanders only need to look to Colorado as good evidence for saying no to any referendum which attempts to legalise weed,” he said.READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ.

Everton to review Kevin Mirallas red card at Swansea

first_imgEverton will review Kevin Mirallas’ red card at Swansea which is set to rule him out of the Merseyside derby next month. Substitute Mirallas had been on the pitch for less than two minutes of the goalless draw when he was dismissed for a challenge on Modou Barrow. Referee Stuart Atwell felt Mirallas had gone over the ball before making contact with Barrow and the Belgium international is now set to receive a three-match ban and miss Barclays Premier League games against West Brom and Liverpool as well as the Capital One Cup tie at Reading on Tuesday. Press Association “But he’s the best defender we’ve got in the squad on one-on-one situations. “It took him a couple of actions to get used to Jefferson and the tempo of the Premier League, but after that he coped and I’m sure any task from now on is going to be a piece of cake for him.” Mirallas’ red card meant Swansea ended up playing against 10 men for the fourth time in six league games this season but there were only seconds left when the forward was banished. It was the first time Swansea had dropped points at home after victories over Newcastle and Manchester United but skipper Ashley Williams felt they had shown the right attitude after losing at Watford. “All the players put their bodies on the line,” Williams told the official Swansea website. “You could see the desire in everyone to show the right intentions on the pitch, which we didn’t do last weekend against Watford. “We knew we had to re-focus coming into this match, we trained like animals all week to get that hunger back into the team. “We could have been a bit better when in possession, but I think our performance showed we came out fighting.” “I haven’t seen it again,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez said of the incident. ” But we will look into it and if we’ve got grounds on it we’ll act accordingly. “I thought it was more a striker trying to defend and putting in a challenge and it looked worse than it actually was. “I felt he didn’t have intention to hurt the Swansea player.” Everton have yet to concede away from home in the league this season with their Swansea shut-out coming on the back of a goalless draw at Tottenham and a 3-0 win at Southampton. But their Liberty Stadium clean sheet was probably the most impressive as injuries forced Martinez to deploy two inexperienced full-backs in an all-English back-four. Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning had only six Premier League starts between them at kick-off and the latter was making his top-flight debut, but the pair managed to limit the threat of Swansea dangermen Jefferson Montero and Andre Ayew down the flanks. “To keep a clean sheet with that youth and the amount of changes we had to make at full-back I’m extremely proud of what we are as a football club,” Martinez said. “I’m sure Tyias will forgive me for putting him one on one against Montero on his full debut and one day he’ll look back and have a laugh. last_img read more

Dede Ayew: “Every Ghanaian will be a Swansea fan now!”

first_imgSummer signing Andre Ayew insists the Swans can count on the support of 28 million Ghanaians this season as Garry Monk’s side target another successful campaign.Ayew, who arrived on a free transfer from Marseille last month, believes the Swans will gain the backing of the entire population of Ghana for the 2015-16 campaign following his move to the Liberty.The 25-year-old, who is the son of African football legend Abedi Ayew, has starred at World Cups and in the Africa Cup of Nations for his home country.And he has no doubt that his nation will get behind Monk’s men as they aim to build on last season’s record-breaking campaign.“I have a really strong attachment to my brothers and sisters in Ghana,” said Ayew, who returned to Ghana’s capital Accra for a short holiday prior to the start of pre-season training.“When I returned to Ghana I felt the warm welcome from all my people. “They are people who really trust me, push me and want me to get to the highest level. I have been in the national team since I was 17 years old, so all of the Ghanaian people have seen me grow up as a person and as a player.“From playing at Marseille to competing in the Champions League, World Cups, African Cups and now the best league in the world with a good team like Swansea – for them to see me get to this level today makes them feel very proud.“My country watches the Premier League every weekend. There are 28 million Ghanaian people and 27 million of those will watch the Premier League.“They wanted me to go to the Premier League, and although I took this decision also for myself, I took it for a lot of people in my country because they wanted me to be here.“Swansea now has another 28 million fans behind them because I know Ghana will be supporting us.

Cycling Marathon “Kragujevac-Mostar” arrived in Sarajevo

first_imgAccompanied by his pilot, the blind cyclist Lazar Filipović is already traditionally a participant in the cycling marathon “Kragujevac-Mostar” that is ridden by cyclists of the Paralympic academy “Junior” and that headed from Mostar two days ago.This tandem loves the capital of BiH a lot. They said that they always love to respond to the invitation by the organizers and cross the route from Kragujevac to Sarajevo.“In this way, we are also preparing for the upcoming European Championship, and this became a tradition for us. The first route was from Kragujevac to Užice, and then from Višegrad to Sarajevo. People already recognize us, they greet us and we are welcome everywhere. This form of cycling has a sport character and is definitely more than just a game. We have been coming to Mostar for 13 years already, and this is one of the ways to connect cities in Serbia and BiH,” said Filipović.Filipović said he also loves to come to the event of diving jumps at Bentbaša, because Sarajevo is a different city from other cities in the region. Secretary General of the Paralympic academy “Junior” Goran Nikulić said that the idea to launch this event was born after the reconstruction of the Old Bridge in Mostar in 2004.Between 15 and 20 participants take part in this event every year, and this is the favorite destination for all cyclists, given the route that they cross. Finances are a problem for us, otherwise we would have as much as 50 participants. People from Čačak, Belgrade and Kruševac also participate,” Nikulić said.These cyclists ride their bikes with heart and do everything with pleasure.The thirteenth traditional cycling marathon “Kragujevac-Mostar 2016” has four stages: Kragujevac-Užice, Užice-Višegrad, Višegrad-Sarajevo and Sarajevo-Mostar.(Source: read more
