Tokoroa mother Julie King has organised a nationwide protest
with a Facebook page called ''Aotearoa bans the sale and
distribution of legal highs in our country''.
Dunedin protest organiser Karen Casey said 22 protests
against synthetic cannabis were planned for New Zealand
today, including in Invercargill and Dunedin.
The Dunedin protest would begin in the Octagon at 3pm and
after an hour of speeches, the protesters would split up to
picket outside synthetic cannabis stores.
More than 100 people had expressed interest in the protest
action, she said.
