Colin Hogg - The High Road

Saturday 21st October 2017

Finding the cannabis laws in his homeland a little too draconian for his tastes, well-known writer and columnist Colin Hogg embarked on a journey to the new frontier of marijuana, the United States.

Travelling through states that have legalised the controversial leaf to varying degrees, Hogg takes the trip of a lifetime - and, in The High Road, makes his case for why cannabis should be legalised in New Zealand too.

In conversation with Golden Bay author Gerard Hindmarsh.

Choose the five or ten talks you wish to attend at a discounted price. Offers can be used for a group booking. These special offers are only available from Theatre Royal Nelson.

Come early to order coffee - when the talking begins the machine is turned off!

Continue the conversation at 10am on both Tuesdays after the weekend sessions, with discussion groups at Nelson’s Elma Turner Library.
