If you don’t know anything about Australia’s version of The Greens, such as their desire to kill unborn children, the elderly, the sick, and whoever else they can by establishing eugenics as law, then this “news” from the equally extreme left ABC is a good place to start building your impression:
A NSW Greens MP has told a budget estimates hearing he broke the law by eating cannabis this morning, to prove a political point about hemp-based foods.
Jeremy Buckingham made the confession before asking Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair why it was illegal to consume hemp seed in New South Wales, stifling a potentially lucrative industry.
The ABC understands Mr Buckingham had eaten some certified organic hemp seeds before attending the hearing.
According to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand, hemp is a source of protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids.
Low-THC hemp can be grown in NSW under licence, but it is used for its fibres and oil, not for food.
Mr Buckingham, the Greens agriculture spokesman, has campaigned for farmers to be allowed to sell hemp seed for human consumption, to make the crop more viable.
Mr Blair appeared momentarily taken aback by Mr Buckingham’s admission:
Mr Buckingham: Minister you may or may not be surprised that this morning I consumed cannabis. I broke the law.
Mr Blair: Camus?
Mr Buckingham: Cannabis.
Mr Blair: Oh cannabis.
Mr Buckingham: Minister, why are standing in the way of a billion-dollar hemp food industry?
Mr Blair: Do you want me to comment on the first part of the question?
In May, the MP lit up an e-cigarette in Parliament to prove a point about legal loopholes around the vapour devices.
He said e-cigarettes should be dealt with under the same laws covering tobacco and nicotine, including banning their use in non-smoking areas.
Hey, even Hitler was voted into power so you can’t blame these guys for appealing to voters: evil gotta eat too.
If you were hoping for social stability and righteous law, at least as much as can be hoped for in a fallen world, then the Greens really should be understood for what they really are.
If you are a Christian and you vote for the Greens, please reconsider. I mean, boasting in illegal mind-altering drug consumption really is exactly what we’ve all come to expect of The Greens and it stands in stark contrast to what one would expect from Christians.
