Repeal the Misuse of Drugs Act, legalise soft (or all) drugs, regulate the market, save billions on policing and make, for example, 20% (VAT) on the £6.5bn+ per year spent on Cannabis.

Why is this idea important?

Too many people are in prison and punted through the justice system in connection with drugs which are, and should be, a personal choice. Restoring people's freedom over what they may put in their body should be part of restoring our civil liberties because if we are not free to choose what we consume or what mistakes we can make, there is no chance at all of instilling a sense of personal responsibility in people. Freedom and responsibility go hand in hand!

Plus, just like California, we need the money.
