The government is in huge debt. Police are wasting time and money arresting people who have done nothing but smoke cannabis. People who want to get rid of their anxiety, depression or some people who simple just want to get high. The truth is none of these people have done anything wrong and wanting to smoke marijuana is the same as wanting to have some wine.

Cannabis was a huge theraputic drug used around the world for over 5000 years before the early/mid 1900s where it was made illegal almost everywhere in the world with countries under pressure from political leaders and from eachother. 1996 saw cannabis get legalised for medical uses in the State of California and since 2001 cannabis has been decriminalized or been made legal for medical uses in over 50 countries and several states across the US.

Canada are predicted to make billions of pounds from their legalisation of cannabis so why can’t we? The truth is cannabis should be bought in shops or online in a safe environment and not in an alleyway where you don’t know whether or not what you getting has been sprayed or laced, where you don’t know if your getting what you paid for or where you don’t know if what your getting is even weed! There’s already a day every year where thousands of police officers watch tens of thousands of people smoke in one of the biggest parks in London so why not just help make it safer, more friendly and help grow this economy. Cannabis is going to be smoked by humans until the end of the human civilization so let’s make it easier for our people. We set trends not follow them so let’s make Britain strong and independent again!!!
