Parliament erupted in laughter as Winston Peters displayed a meme of Paula Bennett showing two images made to look like she’d consumed a huge bag of cannabis.

It began when Bennett, deputy leader of the National Party, questioned the Prime Minister in Parliament about why draft legislation on legalising recreational cannabis included a purchasing limit of 14 grams.

Peters, the Deputy Prime Minister and New Zealand First leader, responded on behalf of the Prime Minister, by holding up a print out of a meme that had circulated on social media.
