New Zealand – Police Charge “Green Fairy” For Giving Away Medical Cannabis

A Waikato man who claims he was giving cannabis free to elderly people for pain relief has been raided and charged by police.

Meremere man Jason Tong entered not guilty pleas to one charge of possession of cannabis with intent to supply, and two charges of supplying a class C controlled drug, in Huntly District Court yesterday.

Tong said he just wanted to do his bit for people in need – and he had gained the backing of a medicinal cannabis advocate who fears “green fairy” prosecutions are becoming more common.

Tong became a green fairy by accident three years ago, when his son was diagnosed with cancer and he began looking into alternative medicines, he said.
