  1. Many US States, Portugal, and other countries have decriminalised the growing, and use of cannabis, which has seen a decrease in crime, and savings on police costs! Its beyond me why the grown up countries don’t do the same, it would also mean less people in prisons! Its a no brainer, but governments are unwilling to fix this!

  2. Perhaps the government hear the cries from parents who see children and grandchildren’s lives wrecked by cannabis to become useless to society, unable to work and a problem to all who live around them.

    Tell the woke idiots to stop peddling lies about cannabis being harmless and support the police on their rare attempts to stop it.

    • As I said it works in the States, and other countries, if people want to wreck their lives there are other drugs available to do that, or alcohol!

      • Also, these countries & states, regulate the quality of the cannabis, and its sold via approved outlets, taxed I believe similar to tobacco, so its a win win situation! Then of course Holland has had cannabis cafe’s for years! I did try it once in 1968, but it didn’t agree with me, it upset my beer, so never touched it again!

        • It is around 50 times stronger than it was in the 70s. A bit like comparing half a lager shandy with methylated spirits!
