Internet Mana’s cannabis conundrum

NZ Herald 8 September 2014
A plan to promote the Internet Mana Party’s cannabis law reform policy was scrapped after Hone Harawira protested in an expletive-filled email.

In an email leaked to media, Mr Harawira, the Mana leader and Tai Tokerau MP, objected to a plan to promote the party’s commitment to cannabis law reform.

“Why am I seeing all this shit about weed and so… f***** little about feed [Feed the Kids]… just because the Internet Party is keen on the weed deal and got all the money to spend on all this flash advertising sh*t,” said the email, which was obtained by TV One.

Mr Harawira wrote that he would not be backing the online campaign and, if it was already up-and-running, would go to media if it was not pulled.

He signed off in caps: “Get your priorities right, folks”.

Mr Harawira said in a press release issued earlier today that he had put out the “very strongly worded” email to colleagues last week and he stood by that criticism.
