Ha! I was confused by the question and clicked the wrong one.

Well, if you asked Helen Clark (and Sue Bradford, depending on the time of day), she’d tell you that it isn’t illegal at the moment.

They should introduce it into the workplace instead…

“Well, if you asked Helen Clark (and Sue Bradford, depending on the time of day), she’d tell you that it isn’t illegal at the moment.”
…and if you ask a week later, they’ll tell you it is.

At least this poll is humorous in intent. As opposed to Trevor Mallard’s over on Red Alert, where he sets out a range of complexities and difficult choices involved in the policy decision whether to allow prisoners to smoke, before asking for a simple yes or no answer to the question “should smoking in prison be banned?”

Shouldn’t that be: “Should smack as part of good penal correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?”

Damn, Bearhunter beat me to it.

I hear that smack is not difficult to find in prisons.
How will it be banned?

Peter, Smack already is banned in prisons. If it’s not hard to find there, well, maybe tobacco won’t be either. I’ve heard of prison wardens turning a blind eye to marijuana because it keeps the prisoners docile, so I expect the same thing will happen with tobacco.
