MPs to vote on medicinal cannabis bills

first_imgRadio NZ News 30 January 2018MPs will vote this afternoon on the government’s plan to make medicinal cannabis more widely available.But some advocates are worried lawmakers will view the legislation as a “compromise position” rather than voting for the Green Party’s more radical bill.There are two related bills – proposed laws or law changes – in circulation.The government’s bill lays the groundwork for a regulated medicinal cannabis industry and effectively allows terminally ill people to use illicit marijuana in the last year of their life. It will be considered by MPs today.Senior advocate group Grey Power is in the odd position of disagreeing with aspects of both bills, but still hoping they pass.Grey Power president Tom O’Connor said the government’s bill was too restrictive and had too many hoops to jump through.But he said the Greens’ effort went too far.“It would be just tempting fate far too much to allow people to grow cannabis at home for their own medication amongst the tomatoes and spuds.“They’d never harvest it for a start. People would be over the back fence to steal it anyway.”Regardless, Mr O’Connor hoped both bills would pass so they could go before a select committee and be debated.“These things need to be discussed in the public and we’d like to see that discussion be as wide-ranging as possible.”Bob McCoskrie, of Christian lobby group Family First NZ, said the government’s more “cautious and researched” legislation should go before a select committee.But he said Ms Swarbrick’s bill should be “chucked in the bin”.“There is no redeemable factor in it. It’s a grow-your-own-dope bill.”READ MORE: https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/political/349194/mps-to-vote-on-medicinal-cannabis-billslast_img read more

Ginola warning for Spurs over Bale

first_img Ginola became a Tottenham icon during his three-year spell at Spurs, terrorising full-backs on the same left wing where Bale has done most of his damage this season. The Welshman has scored 27 goals for club and country this term, prompting speculation that Real Madrid will bid for the 23-year-old star. “They are going to have offers on the table, but if you want to keep being successful it is important that you keep your best assets and Gareth Bale is one of them,” said Ginola, who played 127 times for Spurs. Tottenham will be making another costly mistake if they do not break the bank to keep Gareth Bale this summer, according to former star David Ginola. Press Associationcenter_img Bale will be out for two weeks after he suffered an ankle injury against Basle on Thursday, but Ginola still expects a flood of big-money offers, including one from Paris Saint Germain, to come in for the pacy forward this summer. Ginola has watched on in despair over the last few years as Spurs have been tempted to part with star players like Dimitar Berbatov and Luka Modric after receiving big-money offers. The Frenchman does not want to see the same happen with Bale this summer. Ginola added: “Spurs have made mistakes in the past like selling Berbatov, Modric and Rafael van der Vaart. Let’s not do mistakes any more. Last summer they were minus two very important key players and they had to rebuild the midfield.” Although Bale only signed a new four-year contract last summer, it has been reported that Spurs are willing to sit down with their star man and discuss the possibility of a new deal. Spurs are unwilling to smash their pay ceiling to shell out the huge sums of money on offer at Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. Ginola thinks they must make an exception for Bale given his importance to the squad. “You have to break the piggy bank and spend it on Bale,” the former Newcastle man said. “It will be a question of money. Knowing the salary cap at Spurs it will be complicated because if you are a player you can get an offer from a club that is four or five times more than you currently earn, but he is a Spurs player and he could still be over the next few years.” last_img read more

Of those apartments, 60 will be restricted to low-income residents. Lauren Phinney, Lauren Phinney Updated: 10:19 PM March 5, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Today, the City Council voted to approve the Pacific Village project. I want to thank everyone involved for their collective work to improve this project.— Christopher Ward (@ChrisWardD3) March 6, 2018The proposal faced major criticism from some community leaders and residents of Penasquitos Village, who say that the plan unjustly dislocates economically disadvantaged people, some of whom have lived there since the complex was built in 1970. They also contend that 60 affordable units is too few.“This renovation, if approved, will make us homeless,” said Jeremy Pagaduan, 19, who lives in the village with his family. “Please don’t be oblivious to the cost of living in San Diego. Please consider myself and my family in your decision.”The project won the approval of more skeptical council members due to the large number of concessions made by the developer since Pacific Village was proposed two years ago.Lennar officials agreed not to begin demolition until all the 23 remaining Section 8 voucher holders living in Penasquitos Village have found new housing. The project now consists of 10 percent affordable units, up from none when it was proposed.The company is also offering residents up to $3,500 in relocation assistance and will give at least 120 days notice before residents will be required to leave.Penasquitos Village units were restricted to low-income residents until that deed restriction expired in 2010. Monday its rents are not restricted by any government program and the developer could theoretically charge higher rates, but because the complex has few amenities, rents are comparatively lower priced, according to David Stern, Lennar vice president.Stern said Pacific Village — with rents starting at $1,600 and condominiums starting in the mid-$500,000s — would be important in addressing San Diego’s shortage of middle-income housing.In addition to the 60 on-site units, Lennar also plans to build 12 additional affordable units in its Del Sur development and earmark 43 market-rate units in the region for Section 8 voucher recipients as part of its response to the project’s opposition.“We can’t just focus on the subsidized housing,” Councilwoman Lorie Zapf said. “This is a great project that I think is a great balance of both.”Opponents, including state Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, chastised the council for not acting sooner after the city was notified Penasquitos Village would be losing its restricted affordable status.“What is especially disappointing is the city and the Housing Commission had the opportunity to prepare for a response to this incredible loss of affordable units,” Atkins wrote in a letter that was read by an aide.That was echoed by resident Martha Sullivan.“I remember first learning about this proposed project about two years ago,” Sullivan said. “At that time, we were talking about homelessness as a crisis. And we were talking about the loss of low-income housing as a crisis. People have been telling this city what damage this is going to do to our low-income housing stock for over two years.”The lone no vote was cast by Council President Myrtle Cole, who, after hearing two hours of emotional testimony said she would schedule a special council meeting in July dedicated solely to affordable housing.
