A beautiful twig of land in New Zealand. Has built up a huge reputation concerning artists, hippies, communes, and a whole lot of marijuana chucked in. Also known as 'the Dope Capital Of New Zealand',(I have heard people refer to Napier as this too but really - no. Napier just-just-doesn't compare.*shakes head reminiscently*)it is famed for its long history of producing some very good quality marijuana. The THC content( Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol)of Coromandel cannabis is rumoured at being higher than anywhere else in NZ.
Geographically it is compiled of a volcanic, forest-clad range, fringed with stunning ivory (beach)es and flaming pohutukawas. There are several towns along the coastline, but these are nothing special, except for perhaps Coromandel township. Thames is a hole to the highest order, and unfortunatly enough, is also the gateway to the peninsula. If you're coming to Coromandel, then don't let Thames put you off. It get's better the further north you go. It's only bad quality is the plethora of J.A.F.As that swamp it around the summer months. However an off-season visit ensures you miss these unsavoury saprophytes.
"What do ya mean, 'is this dope good'?! It's Coromandel grass, for hell's sake!"
