Daktory founder to fight drug charges

The founder of New Zealand's first cannabis connoisseurs club says he will fight every drug charge he faces.

Dakta Green entered no plea to four cannabis-related charges at the Waitakere District Court this morning.

The 59-year-old has been remanded on bail and will reappear in court later this month.

He changed his name from Ken Morgan to Dakta Green by Deed Poll.

Green was arrested after police learnt of his plans to expand the club Daktory nationwide.

The outspoken activist says he never pleads guilty to anything to do with cannabis.

He believes cannabis prohibition laws will not last much longer in New Zealand.
