Take a stronger stance on symbols of oppression

I am not suggesting a ban on the burka, it would be wrong to tell anyone what they can and can't wear, all I'm suggesting is that such blatant symbols of oppression be taken more seriously, especially if they apparently conflict with the values of a society.  This idea is just that; an idea, meant to provoke a debate on the subject.  It is not meant to be invite and be weighed down by racial statements, or predjudices.  I am simply questioning the use of such a restricting garment in 21st century Britain.  Thoughts please?

Why is this idea important?

Legalise Cannabis

Legalise cannabis for over 18's, allow companies to cultivate crops and sell (including VAT) for less than the going rate on the illegal drug market.  Price the dealers out of the market.  Create kite markings, and regulations so people know their product is as safe as can be.

Reallocate the funds used on police resources to arrest, put on trial, and jail cannabis users, to thorough and transparent scientific research on the long and short term effects of cannabis use.  Use this information to make a campaign, creating awareness of the results of the research, and discourage the smoking element, suggesting alternative methods for consumption e.g. tea or cookies (low fat mind you).

Create a system similar to Amsterdam, allowing a set limit of cannabis per customer from licensed cafes/bars.

Legalise to avoid tarnishing otherwise law abiding citizens with a criminal record, to enable those who get relief from pain to do so easily, and to give people a choice about what to put in their own bodies.
