Richard Branson is recommending cannabis over cows if New Zealand could legalise the drug.

The billionaire entrepreneur was in the country over the weekend to speak at a charity event.

In an interview with Newshub, he predicted cannabis would be as acceptable as wine in 10 years’ time.

He said the war on drugs had been an absolute failure and it was now time to look at other options.

Shit #Gardens II #Melbourne [#geekgirl]

shitgardens

In celebration of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2017, the team behind ShitGardens will be presenting a pop-up bar, featuring a selection of original works as well as curation of works submitted by their instagram followers.

Building on the success of the last exhibition, the boys will be working alongside Lulu in bringing the bar to ‘life’ with a ShitGardens themed make-over and a selection of kitsch, garden-esque tapas.

As noted, the exhibition will feature both original and submitted content (at an affordable price), with proceeds going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC).

The opening / pop-up bar will begin on Friday 31/3 at 6pm, with the exhibition closing on Sunday 2/4, when Lulu’s doors shut.
