Cannabinoids for treating cancer? « Cancer Research UK – Science Update

Researchers in Spain have published results in this week’s British Journal of Cancer showing that certain cannabinoids – molecules so-called because they were originally found in cannabis – could hold promise for treating prostate cancer.

Repeal the trend of never charging the police with murder / manslaughter.

After it was decided today not to press charges regarding the killing of the man who was walking by the G20 protest last year (but not a partaking in it) by a police officer, is it not about time that the police were subject to the same rule of law as that which they so vindictively enforce?

Charges are rarely if ever brought against violent and offensive police officers, not even in the case of Juan Charles de Mendez did a single police officer get charged with murder. They put 7 bullets into that poor innocent man's head and the resulting enquiry found none guilty of (at the very least) manslaughter. Indeed, the female police officer in charge of that operation was later promoted.

I am utterly fed up with the attitude of the CPS. They send out a message to other police persons that they have Cart Blanche to act in any manner of their choosing and this is resulting in far to many innocent people getting hurt.

The UK public have rightly lost all respect for the law due to ridiculous and unnecessary pseudo-fascist legislation that impinge on every aspect of civilian life. Mixed with the total impunity of the police force, this creates a population that has no respect, admiration or trust in their police.

Currently they are seen as oppressive enforcers of often unlawful, irrational and unjust laws yet simultaneously it is noted that they are not bound by the same rule of law as the public have to suffer on a daily basis.

Repeal the absurdly unjustifiable constant impunity of the police and have them subject to the same law as everybody else in order to restore some kind of faith in the police within British society.

Question for Mr. Clegg RE: Why am I a criminal?

A quick question to you Mr. Clegg to which I would appreciate a straight answer.

I am a hard working citizen who is also in adult education at the moment, studying hard for a Gas Safety qualification. I have never taken any form of welfare from the state as an adult and therefore have cost the state nothing. I am morally adept, ethically minded and a responsible adult. I care for those around me, I help other people wherever and whenever I can whether that's by lifting a heavy suit case down some stairs for a mother who was also trying to look after her child (my most recent good deed) or by any other means. I am an upstanding member of society, I have passed my first aid qualifications and I try to be as good a person as I can be. I actively contribute to the society that I am part of. I used to smoke cannabis regularly and still do on occasion. I am "T" total, I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke cigarettes and I don't indulge in any other drug habit. I speak well, am educated and well read. Lastly, I have never caused disruption of the peace, I have never been in a fight nor raised my hand against any other person.

Therefore, my question to you Mr. Clegg is: Please would you describe exactly why the state insists on criminalising me as well as millions like me and, furthermore, please explain in full the criminal act that I am accused of?

If you cannot justify my enduring criminalisation then perhaps you have just answered the question of the immorality of the Misuse of Drugs Act and also why it should be immediately repealed.

Can we get a definitive comment on the issue of cannabis legalisation from Mr. Clegg?

Seeing as the subject of cannabis law reform is possibly the most repeated single idea on this site, shouldn't it be an appropriate subject for Mr. Clegg to comment on next time he releases a new Home Page video response?

I would like to know whether there is any point in my continuing to champion the cause of freedom and liberty without prejudice for all, especially in the realm of cannabis use. If the hundreds of similar posts on this site have been noticed (and lets face it, it would be impossible not to notice them) then please indicate the governments position on this obviously highly regarded issue.

Repeal The Lie’s & Deceit Of Generations Of Prohibition

After more than half a century of lies and deceit regarding cannabis and the reasons put forward for prohibition by successive governments in order to uphold the lie, the British public are wising up to the whitewash.

We will no longer accept the government's explanation of the merits of prohibition, neither will we continue to be lead astray by such pervasive deceitful policy.

The British public are far in advance of the government on the issue of the "War On Drugs", we have long acknowledged that the fundamental policy is corrupt and utterly unjust, unworkable and morally defunct.

It is now time for the government to repeal all such policies of openly lying to its electorate. It is time for the Government to play catch up with the public whim.

I demand that the government explain to the public why they have felt the need to deceive us for generations and why they have unjustly, immorally and unethically imprisoned so many citizens under trumped up charges that never made any rational sense. I demand to know why they continue to believe that it is right or correct to ruin some body's life for the act of consuming a substance that is of no consequence to anybody but themselves. Lastly, I am sure that I am not alone in also demanding that the Government come clean regarding the entire issue of prohibition and issue a deep and heartfelt apology to the public for creating and continuing to advocate possibly the second greatest deceitful  lie in human history.

REPEAL the governments ability to lie to their electorate by adopting rigid scientific and empirically lead independent bodies that can assess all comments made by government and analyse their factual content without interference from state.

Repeal Imprisonment For Cultivation Of Cannabis

Currently the maximum prison term for cultivation of cannabis is 14 years. The maximum term fro Unregistered, illegal, gun ownership is 5 years.

Something is very wrong with our society.

Illegal guns kill people, growing cannabis doesn't. How on Earth is the law to  be taken seriously if it continues to employ such obviously unjust powers? How on Earth is it remotely justifiable to imprison someone guilty of a victimless crime for a greater term than those convicted of owning a weapon that has such terrible consequences for society?

Repeal the law that allows a prison term to be served by cannabis cultivation.

Mathematical reasoning – RE: Cannabis Legalisation

133 posts in 5 days (site opened 01/07/2010) on the subject of the legalisation of cannabis of which 97% agree with the motion.

97% of 133 = 129.01. Therefore, we will assume a pro-lobby post total of 129.

129 (posts) / 5 (days) = 25.8 average (posts a day)

Average of 12 replies per post of which over 99% agree with the motion.

Therefore, 12 (users per topic posting replies) x 129 (original posts) = 1,548 (average pro -motion advocates) + 129 (Pro-motion original posters) = 1,677 Pro-motion users, average.

1,677 (Pro-motion users) / 5 (days) =  335 new pro-motion users a day, average.

335 (pro-motion users a day) x 365 (days a year) = 9,460 original pro-motion posts/ replies a year by mostly individuals numbering the same.

9,460 (posts / users per year) x 1,677 (pro-motion users) = 122,275 pro-motion users a year.

122,275 (annual pro-motion users) / 60,000,000 (UK population) = above 2 % of our national population! Of course, that's only annual average of those that visit this site to join the call for legalisation.

Taking the number of individuals who have bothered to post here into account and applying a reasonable average, one could assume that for each of the 122,275 annual pro-lobby posters here there will be 100 similar minded individuals who won't visit this site.

Therefore: 122,275 x 100 = 12,227,500 probable adult cannabis users or pro-lobbyist's in the UK. That's 20% of our national population.

Lets say that each user spends an average of £30.00 a week on supporting their habit, which currently goes to the black market.

£30 x 12,227,500 = £360,000,000.00 Annual revenue which could (should) be diverted towards growing British business and emboldening our dwindling economy in general.

Now, the good bit if you're a politician / law maker: Say tax on cannabis would be similar to that of alcoholic spirits. That's 17.5% VAT + 5.5% alcoholic spirit tax = 23%

23% of £360,000,000 =  £82,800,000 in annual tax revenue through usage alone without calculating other additional income such as tourism, GDP,entertainment and other particulars.
