Do you want to see the Daktory reopen? It can if enough people are willing to support it.
We are asking our friends and supporters to become members at the modest cost of $20 a month. This will help to cover the outgoings on the building and provide a token of support for the law reform movement – which is still alive despite the many attacks on it.
If you are interested, come along – the Daktory will have an open day this Sunday from noon to 6 pm and an open evening next Wednesday from 7.30-10 pm. Entry is free for both – with a donation bucket if you are feeling generous – and there will be drinks and snacks for sale. All the facilities are still there for members to enjoy – the pool table, table tennis, table soccer, darts and more.
On Sunday we will be screening The Union: The Business of Getting High at 3 pm – an interesting and informative documentary about the cannabis industry. On Wednesday evening there will be an information session about bitcoins.
This is your opportunity to help keep the Daktory alive and to tell us what you would like to see happening at the club. If you have any suggestions for events, activities and improvements, please let us know.
If the Daktory has to close, then all the effort that went into keeping it open for the last three years will have been for nothing – and the law reform movement will lose an outstanding icon and a valuable centre for activism.
The Daktory will have to operate on a different basis than it has in the past. There will no longer be a dispensary, and people will not be able to consume cannabis on the premises. This is due to Dakta Green’s bail conditions – one of the “crimes” he is charged with is allowing the Daktory to be used for consumption of cannabis. If he is found to be in breach of bail, he could be put in jail until his trial, which will not take place until next year.
Of course you can always have a session before you come to the Daktory or go outside for a smoke like people do with cigarettes. And for your own protection, pleaase do not bring any weed into the building – just in case we get a visit from the local chapter of the Government Gang.

The Daktory is now operating a bitcoin exchange service where people can buy and sell bitcoins. It was launched last Wednesday – September 19 – and within a few days there has been a huge amount of interest.
What is a bitcoin? It is a form of electronic currency – instead of a piece of paper or a coin, it comprises a computer code which is securely stored in a bitcoin wallet. It can be accessed on a mobile phone so it is completely portable, and it can only be accessed by the person who owns the bitcoins.
Bitcoins are a legal form of currency that is completely free from interference by governments and banks. They provide total privacy for all kinds of transactions, and they are accepted by many kinds of businesses all over the world.
The Daktory has set up a website – www.coinmarket.co.nz – where you can buy and sell bitcoins, and find more information about them.
