Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne
has rubbished claims the Government
misled retailers over the banning of
The highs, illegal to sell from next
week, were banned under an amend-
ment pushed through Parliament last
week by Mr Dunne.
Mark Carswell, whose Wellington
Cosmic Corner stores sold synthetic
cannabis products, said the Govern-
ment had backtracked on discussions it
had had with product sellers.
The Government has told us over
the last six months to prepare for regu-
lation, which we have, he said.
There s been no communication
[about a ban] apart from what s been in
Cosmic would be willing to conduct
the necessary testing to ensure
products would be safe to sell, but
needed time to carry this out, he said.
It takes three months to do this.
They have to go through clinical
[The ban] is election year
grandstanding and the Government,
before Rugby World Cup, saying, Let s
make sure the streets are clean of
things which we do not like .
Mr Dunne said communication was
not necessary, likening it to hens
consulting with the foxes .
The last people we want to talk to
are the manufacturers [because] they
indicated that they will fight the ban,
Mr Dunne said.
Any retailers who thought there was
not enough notice, or did not see it
coming, were kidding themselves.
Anyone watching the situation can
have sorted out the situation.
People who were at all concerned
could figure out the bomb was going to
fall at some stage. In Australia they
gave eight days. Here we have given
two weeks notice.
The 12-month ban that would be
imposed was a halfway house until
the products could be proven safe to the
public, Mr Dunne said.
He said it was nothing to do with the
election or World Cup, but was a cred-
ible way to get synthetic cannabis off

Grow Wellington s new chairman is to get a
handsome salary increase after just a month
in the job.
Paul Mersi took over from Murray McCaw
at the end of June.
Mr McCaw was paid $20,000 a year, and
board members were paid $15,000.
A report by Wellington Regional Council
policy adviser Kate O Regan noted that Mr
Mersi would need time to get up to speed
with the Wellington Regional Strategy and
Grow Wellington s programme to implement
Given the new demands to be placed on
the chair the $5000 additional remuneration
does not appear to be adequate, Ms
O Regan wrote.
She recommended paying Mr Mersi
$30,000 a year and the council approved it
unanimously without comment at its meet-
ing last week.
