How these educational books on growing and using beneficial herbs and mushrooms safely could be injurious to the public good is beyond us. It is an insult to the intelligence of New Zealand adults that we are not deemed mature enough to read these books. The prohibition of these books is out of date with the worlds shift away from last century's failed war on drugs and prohibition.

Until the New Zealand government catches up with the rest of the world, we have carefully selected some of the best harm reduction and educational books that are still legal to be viewed by kiwi eyes (just).
