Crusher Collins: “I’d probably take up drugs”

MP Judith Collins

Government Minister Judith Collins says she’d probably end up taking drugs if she ended up having to work with cat-hater and pro-cannabis politician hopeful Gareth Morgan.

Morgan is making a push for the Government to legalise cannabis for anyone over the age of 20.

However, when questioned about the move by Ryan Bridge on RadioLive, Collins wasn’t overly impressed.

“Gareth Morgan, how can you hate cats? If I had to deal with Gareth Morgan, I’d probably take up drugs,” she told Bridge.

That’s a big call for the ex-Police and ex-Justice minister.  

However, when asked about her stance on people who smoked cannabis, Collins wasn’t too bothered.

“I actually don’t have moral problems with other people who don’t inflict difficulties or pain on other people, but that’s not the law,” she told RadioLive.

“One of the issues around the law is that it’s there, it needs to be upheld and if we were to change the law, then it’s an entirely different thing.”

Collins is very staunch about the observation and execution of The Law.  But even she recognises that there is a gamut to the marijuana debate that ranges from private use, medicines and decriminalisation.

All these issues need to be dealt with individually, or we’ll get nowhere.

Let’s start with medical.
