Laws should only stipulate the intent for which they have been written.

Each law should only contain a statement which stipulates the "Intent Statement". The Judge should be given the power to make his own judgement as to whether the accused has broken this intend and the extent to which it has been broken . Any law which has masses of details, ifs and buts, is gotten around by the legal defense. Judges should be empowed to simply make their own personal judgement based on the simple one line "Intent Statement".

Legalise Cannabis cultivation for Medical/Personal use & introduce a growing Lisence, similar to a fishing lisence

I will keep my idea simple, as all the other messages/ideas, have pointed out the obvious points to semi-legalising the natural drug that is "cannabis" :

 

1.WHY SHOULD THE UK GOVERNMENT REVOLT THE LAW & ALLOW US TO GROW CANNABIS AT HOME

 

The FACT is thousands of people in the UK are already growing Cannabis for their own use, some for personal use/pleasure, others for medical help / health benefits. The Hydroponic & Seed company's are popping up all over the place at the moment, and this is helping with our economy. The problem is, and really think about this…. IT IS ILLEGAL in the UK TO GROW A SEED! , yes a seed, that mother nature put on this earth for us all to enjoy the fruits.  This its self is so WRONG!. but i have not come on here to grumble and moan, so i will get to my idea!…

2.  MY SUGGESTION TO OUR GOVERNMENT

What i suggest, is we relax the law on cultivation of cannabis, and allow a person, to rightly grow up to a certain amount of plants say(4 to 8) for our own use. To regulate this, and generate some income to the government at the same time, I suggest we incorporate a Liscence sceme, where if you wanted to grow cannabis in your own home, you would have to purchase, this liscence or apply for this  licence as you would a firearm.

This could then be regulated with spot visits, by the police or an agency that is put into place, similar / on the same lines as the environment agency and fishing liscening scheme. to ensure people are not growing over the limit(s).

 

3. WHY THIS WOULD WORK?

I Believe this would work, as the government could regulate, the people that are growing cannabis, just as they do with people that own firearms. 

Most people who are growing at the moment, are otherwise law-abiding citizens, and enjoy the pleasures of growing a plant from seed, just as you would growing tomatoes or chilli's, and enjoying the health benefits / calming / pleasure from thier hard work :-). The problem at the moment is this is illegal, and they could face upto 14 years in Prison! yes sad but true, prison for growing a seed?.

I should state at this point, I know way condone organised criminals growing 100's / 1000's of plants for financial gain, The laws should stick, or be upped greatly for criminals involved in the commercial cultivation of cannabis. This brings me to my next pointer:

 

3. IF THE UK GOVERNMENT DOES NOTHING?

I strongly believe that cannabis smoking is on the rise, this means, that thier is a huge demand for the drug, which in turn is increasing the organised criminals to produce more of the drug, and sell it on our streets for extortionate prices. Often cut with dangerous particles like glass, to make it weigh more, increasing the criminals UN TAXED profits.  This will only get worse! unless the government step in, with a system to allow users to produce or buy  thier own supply, or have designated outlets to buy it, like in other countries i.e Holland. I wont go into this, as its already been more than cover's in other topics.

 

5.CONCLUSION

 

I think the PRO's far way the cons of legalising cannabis under a liscenced scheme for personal / medical growers. This would free up resources, police and courts,  and generate some income to the government to help with our national deficit / debt. Slow down the criminals / drug dealers dramaticly, as the smoker could grow his own, without having to come in contact with the dealers / organised thugs!. saftley in thier own home/greenhouse. We should be looking forward and ahead, not back and behind, lets be honest here, cannabis has NEVER EVER! killed anybody… and i think its MEDICAL uses need to be looked into very very carefully, this is an amazing plant that mother nature has given us.

ABOUT ME

My personal story is i use cannabis for my health with anxiety / panic attacks / depression, and started using the drug after a breakdown, it has helped me a lot, more than any anti-depressents could ever do! to the fact that i no longer suffer like i did for years. and I am now back in work, and leading a normal life, I only smoke once a week believe it or not 🙂 thats all i need to make me feel able to face the week ahead with a smile. 

I am not highly educated, so i appoligise now for my poor wording, and awful spelling lol…

Give people the right to use/cultivate Cannabis for personal/recreational/medicinal use.

This needs little explanation as there are already loads of the same suggestion out there. I'm just helping to make sure the point is made that thousands of us support this cause and that something needs to be done about it.

Why is this idea important?

Make cannabis a controlled drug – legalise and regulate it

Cannabis is not a controlled drug, despite what politicians and police may tell you. A substance cannot be said to be "controlled" unless the trade in that substance is controlled.

Prohibition – the policy applied to cannabis – makes any control of the trade impossible because:

1: We have no idea who sells cannabis
2: We have no idea where cannabis is sold from
3: We have no way to control what is sold in terms of strength, purity or – and this is perhaps the most important aspect – type; different types or strains of cannabis contain different ratios of THC and CBD which may be very important if the claims of a link to mental ill-health are true.
4: There can be no restriction on the trade such as age limits
5: Dealers often don’t know what they’re selling – the only qualification needed to be a dealer is unaccountability.

In addition we can't even study the user group. Because the use of cannabis is illegal there is no way to take valid statistical measurements of the consumers or of what they are buying. This is why the move from imported hash to so-called "skunk" went unnoticed for 10 years by the authorities who claim to be in control.

OPTING OUT OF THE NHS MEDICAL RECORDS DATABASE

The way the current system works,everybody is automatically opted in the medical record database system. My idea is to  make it neccessary for you the patient to opt into the system rather than opt out. The database managers should have to sell their idea to the patients, so that the patients can make an informed decision on this matter rather than automatically being added to this centralised database system.
