Now what?

Other than Fashion Week, we also talked about the temper tantrum thrown by my venerated friend, member of parliament Ricardo Croes, during a public budget meeting last week, which unfortunately delayed the ratification of all ministerial budgets.

Now what?

You stormed out and slammed the door.

What do we do now?

Besides, what are we talking about?

Medicinal cannabis?

Recreational cannabis?

Are BOTH all of a sudden clumped together?

According to my understanding the idea was to introduce medical marijuana, step by step, AZV supports the idea, and then maybe over time, reach an understanding with other members of parliament, such as Hendrik Tevreden, an understanding negotiated behind closed doors, not in a public forum.

Don’t you have private meetings, before public meetings, motivated by the desire to iron differences out and avoid public embarrassment?

Hendrik Tevreden is not wrong. His personal life experienced, as an addiction councilor, showed him the ravaging effects of the disease, and he is ringing the alarm, not to take the issue of recreational marijuana lightly, and just usher it in under pressure, because a coalition partner threw a temper tantrum.

On the other hand, a coalition partner is entitled to a certain degree of outrage if an election promise is broken.

But come on, grow up, an election promise is a suggestion, it is never etched in stone.
