Kiwibank Shuts Down ‘Green Fairy’ Account After Giving Her ‘Local Hero’ Medal
“Green fairy” Rose Renton is having her Kiwibank account shut down less than a year after the same bank awarded her a “local hero” medal.
Renton has been a prominent campaigner for medicinal cannabis since the death of her son Alex in 2015, for whom she had fought for the right to treat with cannabis products.
