You can smoke as much hemp as you like but it won't get you high.

So says the local hemp industry, who say it's time New Zealand made the most of our ideal growing conditions for the plant, and the 50,000 industrial uses for hemp stalk and seeds.

They're running a week of events to raise the profile of hemp as a legitimate crop. Richard Barge is the treasurer of the Hemp Industries Association.

3:10 The Unslut Project  

When Emily Lindin was in Intermediate school, she kept a diary detailing the bullying she endured when her classmates labelled her a slut.  It was so bad, she contemplated suicide. Lindin is sharing her raw, emotional diaries, from age 11-14,  online in a blog and in a documentary.

She hopes the view from a teenager girl can start a conversation about bullying and slut shaming. It's called The Unslut Project.
