MP's to debate legalisation of cannabis!!!!

MPs will debate whether to legalise the production, sale and use of cannabis after a petition calling for a change in the law reached more than 200,000 signatures.

Paul Flynn, Labour MP for Newport West, who has worked with cannabis law reform campaigners, will lead the debate in Westminster Hall on 12 October.

The government has already insisted in reply that it has no plans to legalise cannabis since a change in the law “would not address the harm to individuals and communities”.

James Owen, who started the petition, said that despite public backing – it reached more than 125,000 signatures in just five days after it was posted in August – he was not hopeful that the debate could change the government’s position.

some cancer sufferers and others may be glad if it were legalised..

Sounds like a good, common-sense measure. I wish Texas would take the matter a little more seriously -- when they legalized marijuana in Colorado, that state gained 16,000 jobs in the first year alone, and Colorado only has 5.3 million people.

Yep. Perhaps it'll bring the price down and also stop a lot of the shit that's being sold in the streets.

Exactly.
When I used to smoke it there was proper bush (weed) - I only bought mine from a couple of Rastas I knew - and a nice bit of hash (my dad used to get me that)

Now there's this horrible skunk. It stinks and I'm sure it makes people crazy.
