Casinos in Fiji and possible sale of marijuana – how dare you Hassan Khan!

Bloggers, well now you have Hassan Khan, the Director for Human Services openly advocating for the lawful sale of marijuana to provide extra revenue for Fiji! He should be ashamed of himself and resign! I ask Khan, apart from his short sighted revenue making, what will it cost the tax payers of Fiji in terms of social and cultural denigration? Khan would not even dare saying the same thing in India or Pakistan. I cannot help but suspect some sinister motive to decimate the Fijian race and this kind of open advocating of legalizing an illegal substance, which is illegal in most part of the world is truly shocking.

I like to challenge you ‘silent ones’ do you continue to pretend all is okay in the heartland, where people in positions of responsibilities openly advocating the potential sale of marijuana or are you too stoned out of your head to think clearly?

Tui Savu.

The Fiji Council of Social Services says a Social Impact Assessment must be done by a group of independent Fiji professionals before any decision is made on the setting up of Casinos in Fiji.

The Council of Social Services also welcomes the government’s desire to discuss the issue of Casinos dispassionately.

In a statement issued today, the Council of Social Services director Hassan Khan even suggests that while discussing the ideas of Casinos, Government should also consider discussing the sale of marijuana – which it says could provide extra revenue for Fiji.

Khan says while Government wishes to discuss the setting up of Casinos without religious, health or criminal fervor – they should also wish to discuss Marijuana production in the same manner.
