Some good news from the legal sysem this week. Doug McLeod had a charge withdrawn – the charge of permitting premises to be used for consumption of cannabis. He was charged with this “crime” because he was staying at the Daktory one of the times when it was raided.
Eight people turned up at Waitakere Ditrict Court this wet and chilly morning to support Doug. We got plenty of toots and waves from passing traffic as hundreds of people saw our signs.
They told Doug to be at the court at 9 am, but it was early 10 am before the judge turned up. Why are judges alwys late? In most oher jobs you would get sacked if you were late all the time.
Fortunately, Doug’s case was the first one to be called. The police sought leave to withdraw the charge, and it was all over. A few people clapped, but not loud enough to upset the judge.
Doug stood in the dock, proudly wearing his Freedom is NORML T shirt, and asked for an apology from the prosecutor. The judge told him to take it up with his lawyer, and he was free to go.
We gathered outside the court for another show of signs and more photos – you’ll find some of them on Facebook. Doug called out “Cannabis for sale!” when a cop walked by.
Doug’s next appearance at Waitakere court will be on yet amother bullshit charge. He was arrested or sparking up a solar cone at a previous protest. This is a classic example of how the police try to bully the law reform movement into submission.
Dakta Gizi is back at the Daktory, now that her bail conditions have been changed, and she no longer has a curfew. So no more 5 am curfew checks by the filth – a favorite trick of theirs.
At Monday’s bail hearing, police opposed the changes. They even tried to get Dakta Green’s bail conditions altered, in spite of the fact that it was not his bail hearing. They claimed that “law breaking” is still going on at the Daktory. No comment.
Thanks to the people who replied with information about other court appearances. We don’t know about them unless somebody tells us, and we want to spread the word about any of our people being vicrtimized by the legal system – so keep the info coming.
Huge Crowds At Open Day
Just kidding, folks. It was a very quiet Sunday afternoon at the Daktory, but a few friends dropped by – and nothing bad happened. So we did it again Wednesday evening. Six people turned up this time – all wanting to buy weed. We hd to disappoint them – we can no longer offer that service, and we ask people not to smoke on the premises.
Everything else is still here at the Daktory – the pool table, table tennis, table soccer, darts, chess, snacks and drinks, and hard core Daktivists.
We’re having another open day this Sunday, noon to 6 pm. Come and talk to us about what you would like to see and do at the club. We are open to suggestions.
Become a member and help the Daktory survive. Membership is just $20 a month. If enough people join, we can afford to keep the club running – and get the Cannabus back on the road.

Last But Not Least

It’s the end of an era on the Dak Show this week. This week the show’s main focus is on the closing on The Daktory’s dispensary, which will see more people now replying on tinny houses for their medicine or recreational drug of choice. Dakta Green talks about how The Daktory came about, and what will happen to the club now that it will not be selling cannabis.
