  1. With domestic violence running rampant the police can afford five months investigation into a woman selling cannabis cakes in Nimbin. What an appalling waste of scarce resources! Instead of arresting her she should be congratulated for providing the public with an alternative to smoking cannabis which carries more, or even greater health risks, than smoking tobacco. I look forward to the day when cocaine sniffer dogs are deployed in the political and business corridors of power in this country but I’m not holding my breath.

  2. PATHETIC USE OF POLICE RESOURCES.
    SHAME ON THE MINISTER AND ALL [THOSE] WHO DO HIS BIDDING.
    VERMONT USA GOVERNOR JUST DECIDE TO PARDON ALL THE CANNABIS USERS IN JAIL AND TO CLEAR THEIR RECORDS OF ANY CONVICTIONS AS HE WANTS THE WAR ON POT TO END IN HIS STATE.
    IF THE POLICE KNOW THE POT USERS ARE GOING TO BE PARDONED BY THE GOVERNOR MAYBE THEY WILL DEVOTE THIER TIME TO MORE USEFUL ACTIVITIES.
    ALOHA NOAH

  3. Funny how just as laws in the US are relenting, and medical cannabis gets a foot in the door in Australia, the cops come down more on small time sellers and users. Is this so that corporate interests can inherit a monopoly once the door is finally opened?

  4. A five month investigation on an elderly woman distributing health and nutrition… and NOTHING on a myriad of complaints and reports of ICE cooking, thefts and other criminal activity by known crims on a neighboring share in the same community.
    Either the police are lazy, culpable or just like a soft target.

  5. Absolutely pathetic. Five months? Really? Hang your head in shame police, no wonder burglaries are up! Your a bunch of softc..ks hitting soft noncriminal targets. The law is the crime!
