Cannabis

Comment 1st July 2010

Legalise, regulate and tax cannabis. Prohibition is what has caused all the bad things around cannabis. The goverment needs to take controll of this in demand market, as at the moment it is in the hands of organised crime. Users are subjected to persecution by the state and are forced to buy cannabis from untrustworthy sources, putting themselfs at risk.

Familys are ruined by 'raids' done by the police to get a couple of plants growing in someones house.. if there is no victim, there is no crime. The police on the other hand are making victims out of cannabis users.

many millions in the UK smoke cannabis, and are treated as second class citizens. To gain trust in the people, listen to what we are saying and legalise cannabis because many of us have lost complete trust in any of you.

Why does this matter?

Regualting and taxing cannabis will:

– create a new market, therfore creating new jobs (shops opening, grow operations..) and a new for of tax revenue

– Allow police to tackle real dangers to society, making comunities safer to live in

– free up prison space (not letting sex offenders, murderers out early and cutting cost for prisons)

– Make it much harder for children to get hold of the drug… people caught selling to it can be fined etc..

– cannabis users will have consumer rights

– cannabis will undergo regulation procedures (not contaminated, fair scores etc..)

 

Also the full use of hemp, and allowing people to grow it would save te planet. Hemp can produce a sutainable 'green' biofuel at very low costs, be used to make plastics, cloth, rope, clothes, cleaning products (soap, shampoo), seeds are the most nutriotional to man… please look into it 🙂
