In New Zealand a medicinal dispensary has started using a vending machine to supply cannabis to patients so no-one can be arrested for selling. :thumbsup: However I don't see how this prevents being arrested... Surely the owner of the machine is responsible for it's contents? Still, an interesting idea.

New Zealand police say they have seized a marijuana vending machine during a raid on a "cannabis club" in Auckland which campaigns for the drug's legalisation.
The vending machine at The Daktory in suburban New Lynn had been set up to dispense one-gram bags of marijuana for $NZ20 ($15.59) each, according to one of the campaigners behind the scheme.
Police said they arrested four people and seized the vending machine, $NZ27,000 in cash and around 700 grams of cannabis, as well as bongs, pipes and other utensils when they raided the property on Thursday evening.
The innovative marijuana distribution method has received light-hearted media coverage in New Zealand in recent days but detective inspector Bruce Scott said The Daktory was breaking drug laws.
"Wherever there is drug offending of any kind, police will act swiftly," he said.
"We certainly do not take a softly-softly approach."
Cannabis is illegal in New Zealand, although studies show it is the third-most popular drug in the country, after alcohol and tobacco.
Speaking just before Thursday's raid, pro-cannabis activist Julian Crawford said The Daktory was a cannabis club modelled on the cannabis cafes in Amsterdam, where possession of small amounts of the drug has been decriminalised.
"It's basically anonymous, it's a way for people who don't want to have to associate with gangs or criminals to buy cannabis in a safe environment," he said.
He said organisers were not running the establishment for profit and intended to plough any money made from the scheme into community projects.
Mr Crawford could not be contacted early Friday and it was unclear whether he was among those arrested in the police operation.

The media and everyone else sees it as light hearted, but the law still comes down like a ton of bricks. Time for change please!

For most things, rape, murder, assault, you can count on the police to stop for a doughnut and a coffee but...

Had all my work cordless tools stolen out of my ute, was like extracting teeth getting the 1 cop that turned up to even dust the lock for prints.... Had 5 dangerous plants growing downstairs, it took 6 cops all morning to safely render them harmless to the neighbourhood and THERE WAS NOBODY HOME!!!
