Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters and National deputy Paula Bennett today exchanged friendly jibes in the house over proposed cannabis regulations.
Yesterday, Ms Bennett brought a bag of oregano to Parliament today to demonstrate the proposed 14 gram daily limit of cannabis that a person could purchase.
Today, she asked the Prime Minister why 14g was chosen as a limit.
Answering for Jacinda Ardern, Mr Peters stood up, holding a print out of two photos of Ms Bennett and said he "had an example of the kind of amounts that are in other countries".
One of the photos was Ms Bennett in October while she was in Canada, holding up a bag of cannabis worth $10,000. The other was Ms Bennett yesterday holding up oregano.
"In this case it's very hard to tell the difference between the dope and the weed," Mr Peters said.
"But, Ms Bennett is a world-class expert on that and I do defer to her experience and knowledge."
Ms Bennett shot back, saying if "the Minister would like a picture of me for his wall, he can just let me know".
