Whangarei resident ‘appalled’ by lack of action against Daktory cannabis club
Stuff 11 January 2017 
A Whangarei resident is “appalled” that a local cannabis club is getting away scot-free with growing and selling the drug.

The Daktory Whangarei advertises cannabis meet-ups on Facebook and makes no secret about what goes on at its clubhouse on Port Rd.

The address is leased by Brian Borland, who has been a cannabis dealer for 42 years.

He founded the club to give people a safe space to purchase and smoke the drug.

But that is unacceptable to at least one local resident, who wrote to Borland’s landlord to complain about “undesirables” frequenting the neighbourhood.

“You only have to glance in and you can see the grow rooms with cords running into them and the odd plant out in public view,” said the resident, who asked not to be named for fear of repercussions.

“You are renting out a unit for criminal activity … It is appalling that you and the police are sitting on your hands over this.”
