De-criminalise personal use of cannabis

Comment 2nd July 2010

Allow people to smoke cannabis in the privacy of their own homes without fear of arrest or a criminal record. Allow licensed places where people can buy cannabis legally.

Why does this matter?

1) As free people living in a liberal society, the government should not have the power to restrict how I choose to spend my free time when it does not harm other people

2) Criminalising cannabis whilst maintaining the legality of alcohol makes a mockery of the law

3) Keeping cannabis on the underground market loses the Exchequer a lot of tax revenue – and it needs that revenue now whilst we are facing this huge budget deficit

4) Forcing users to buy cannabis on the black market exposes them to harder drugs and a criminal underground which they might otherwise not be exposed to
